Expats Musical Comedy at Fishbon

Tonight’s show was a repeat of the sold out performances from 10/30-11/2/2016, which was produced by Laura Inks-Bodine and directed by Clay Bodine of Fishbon del Sur.

Salta Landscapes

Though we are high in the Andes, often topping 10,000 ft, this entire ... Read more
