Dorothy Andries – The Pioneer Local

Areyzaga has never sounded better. If her smile was radiant, her voice was even more so. She soared easily through the Peri’s songs, while displaying a fine acting technique. (The Peri, who accompanies humans to paradise, longs to enter also, but is barred because of her parentage. The drama tells of her quest for the perfect gift to bring with her to the golden gate. She finds it in a tear from a repentant sinner.)
