Thank you to Mr. Paul Wontorek of Broadway.com for the fabulous shout out to and complimentary remarks for the Woodstock Playhouse and its Summer 2017 Cast & Crew of 'All Shook Up' on 'Live at Five!' The Woodstock Playhouse segment can be viewed after the 9 minute mark.
Mr. Wontorek's comments followed suit with a series of season long notes and affirmations from visiting patrons, from the Broadway world and every niche of life, that the cast and offerings of the Woodstock Playhouse Summer Theatre Company are that which are "Broadway Quality" on par with "World Class Entertainment" and that the cast delivered as "Veterans of Broadway!"
