Put this in producer Chuck Carson’s “I Can’t Believe This is Happening Tonight” file. I wrote a 7 story ran last Friday about the latest incarnation of the “Bob & Bing” series, which includes an actress portraying legendary movie star Dorothy Lamour. Her son read about the show, titled “Road to Fresno,” and he came to the production, where he watched Cassie Miller, a Los Angeles-based singer, as Lamour. Carson writes:
John R. Howard, who resides in Clovis, came to see our show and introduced himself and his wife following the performance. I am pleased to say, they gave their utmost approval of Cassie and of the production. We were all surprised when we found out that he and his wife have been living in Clovis since 1995. It’s a small world after all!
What a great story — and what a moment for Miller.
