Tonya Pinkins had every right to be bursting with pride when she talked about Professional Performing Arts High School production of Caroline, or Change. This phenomenal cast of Savannah-Lee Henry as Caroline, Myer Patterson, Madalynn Mathews, Anya Jimenez, Erica Simone Barnett, Dwany Guzman, Oliver Stern, Noah Gellman, Elizabeth Kenny, Andre Gulick, Oona Higgins, Christian Dell’Edera, Kimiko Jackson, Eden Rolle, Mark Aguirre, Leonay Shepherd, Hayes Philip, Manuel Hodgson and Julien Tornelli was each better than the next.
