Theater Review: 'The Bride' vows to entertain at The Pines

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Return with us to the days when newspaper editors were tyrants, entry-level journalists were treated like chattle and the ever-present sound of the newsroom was the rhythmic rat-tat-tat of manual typewriters.

That's the setting for a world-premiere musical, "Here Comes the Bride," through March 9, The Pines Dinner Theatre, 448 N. 17th St., Allentown.
