Roses are Red
VIolets are Blue
I'll give you a Kiss
If you give me one Too.

This was a cute set piece that wasn't too challenging textually. I will remember it for Frassinelli's amazing set, Leith Burke's equally amazing frog outfit, and Karen Goldstein learning her lines on a moment's notice to rescue me from a poor casting choice. This is also the production where future Shotgunner Rich Reinholdt stepped forward and nominated himself "Minister of Propoganda".
