Hear the word on the THE HONG SHOW!
"I once again want to thank you for the opportunity of attending a very well presented showcase of your talent. It was certainly not done in the "normal" fashion that a showcase is used to being set up in...it allowed us to be more comfortable in a beautiful restaurant setting with good food and drinks to enjoy before the show. As a producer, the showcase was a good venue to introduce me to some very good and talented actors that I will be keeping in mind for future productions. One last note to you James, I really enjoyed the piece you wrote as I could identify with it from my own casting experiences, good work."

"My hats off to the little girl, who I believe is the true future of our craft. I really find it interesting to watch little kids perform especially when they have a sort of maturity to them it is very interesting. They are totally commited, not self conscious and completely give themselves to who they are playing. I hope some of this comments help with all of you. They are just observations and please keep me posted to more events like this... Great job to all."

"Thank you all for your feedback and encouragement. What a fun and supportive group of people. Thank you James and April for your wonderful guidance, patience, time and for providing this wonderful opportunity. The comments I rereceivedas that it was a very clever format. It flowed well and was more like a floor show than a showcase. The guests felt they really got their money's worth."
