It is shaping up to be a jam-packed fun-filled end to the month of November for theatregoers and for Massachusetts Entertainment & Theatre Review Magazine (aka "METRMAG").
This weekend (November 16th and 17th) METRMAG will be on site at “Super Megafest” in Framingham to get some interviews with some of the event’s special celebrity guests including Tony Danza (“Honeymoon in Las Vegas”), Nicholas Hammond (“Sound of Music”), John Schneider (‘Grand Hotel”, “Chicago”), Tom Wopat (“Annie Get Your Gun”), Catherine Bach (who also got her start as a Von Trapp child in “Sound of Music”), and Loretta Swit (who was in the televised adaptation of “Superman the Musical”).
We will chat with them about some of their more theatrical related experiences and see if they can share any great stories from their days on stage or on the screen.
