Francis Musical a Hit in Boston

John Maganzini Around the Province

Response to “The Francis Story”, a show written by David Convertino that was presented at three performances in Boston earlier this month, continues to be favorable; the “applause” keeps coming. Through e-mails, notes, and comments, the friars and staff are receiving wonderful feedback.

More than 500 people attended the musical, and some more than once. One comment seems to be repeated over and over again, “This musical has really allowed me to come to know Saint Francis and his wonderful spirit! I have gained a deeper understanding for what it means to be a follower of Saint Francis and to be part of this Franciscan family at Saint Anthony Shrine.” Another observation is “…it made my heart ‘sing’ and I just can’t stop singing!”
