It’s an honor to bring Peter Filichia’s column every week on Kritzerland called ‘Filichia on Friday’ to our readers on DCMetroTheaterArts.

And Mazel Tov to Peter on seeing his 10,000th show…and counting!

This Week: Ten Thousand, Ten Thousand and One, Ten Thousand and Two …

And since Little Dancer ends its run today at The Kennedy Center, it was reassuring to know that Peter and I agreed on the production and its possible journey to NYC.
