ICCC2 Presents Glynn Turman
Gil Banner Hollywood Fringe Fest.jpg

I enjoyed the production immensely!  Paying homage to Gil Scott-Heron’s work is brilliant and to have his daughter a part of the production makes it extra special. The bonus was the intimate theatre venue that I didn't even know about.
