“Having had the unique privilege of being a long-time voter for the Tony Awards, which celebrates Broadway’s finest, I would place the extraordinary artists of the Wexford Light Opera Society alongside the very best of Broadway. I hope my New York colleagues will one day have the opportunity to experience this remarkable musical journey.” - Judith Rice - President, Actors’ Equity Foundation
