BAXTALO DROM MINI TOUR!!
I am over the moon excited about this upcoming road trip and mini-tour in April! What a FANTABULOUS way to spend my birthday weeks!
The catalyst for this trip that the wonderous Vegas J Jenkins and I will be embarking on was the notion of bringing the show that I co-produce with 3 other women in San Francisco, Baxtalo Drom-the Lucky Road, to New Orleans, where a former producer now resides. And why just fly out when there is so much to do on the journey there! Check out where we'll be in the first weeks of April, and I do hope that I will get to see you on our wanderlustings through the south! It's a Lucky Road indeed!
