A review of "Grand-Pre" musical

'Grand Pre' makes us all proud. The critic makes one major gaffe:
Set in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia, in 1755, the play centers on the Romeo and Juliet-like relationship between a young Anglo-Saxon girl (Ashley Lopez) and her Acadian boyfriend (John Oliver).
Sorry, Ray--you got that reversed. She's Acadian, his father is an Englishman married to an Acadian. Otherwise, a good review.
