Juanita MORE!

Music, it's so often said, has one of the strongest associative links for memory; you hear a song from your youth and immediately -- if only fleetingly -- you are transported back to that time of history and the textures come again into focus.

Mr. Burns is having a stellar run at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco with Mark Rucker at the helm.
