My View: Dear Evan Hansen’s Benj Pasek & Justin Paul Also Have A Hit In New Jersey!

New Jersey grows great peaches and Corinna Sowers Adler grows great actors in her NiCori Sutdios Productions.  Last night the musical James and the Giant Peach opened at the Westminster Arts Center at Bloomfield College performed by The NiCori Teen Performance Ensemble.  Benj Pasek & Justin Paul would be very happy hearing the music and lyrics performed by these very professional future Broadway actors. In all honesty and transparency I must admit that my granddaughter Zoe Gelman who played James was superb.  Almost to the point I thought I had another grandson.  And this is not Fake News.   Bravo!
