I hope everyone saw the article on the wonderful Mincks family in the T-D today. My only complaint is that this family warrants a book, not just a short little article. It’s been astonishing to watch them all grow up and flourish. I couldn’t believe it when I read that Amanda is 30, particularly since Kim doesn’t look a day older than the first day I ever met her. I’m looking forward to seeing Minckses on stage for years to come.
It was interesting to read about the genesis of “Rumpelstiltskin’s Daughter” this past Sunday. The picture of young Gianna Galiffa peaked my interest as well. My sources say she is a nice local girl, not a hired talent from out of town, which is a little surprising given that she’s playing the title role in such a big production. Could yet another extremely talented local actress be entering the Richmond scene? One need look no further than the cast of “Little Women” at the Mill to see how many of them there are here already. We need more female-centric plays (anything but “Quilters” please…) in production around here to showcase all this talent!
