Ilyse has brought our community so much needed joy this past year with her engaging and entertaining musical theater lectures. The cares of the world just melted away as Ilyse brought us into the magical worlds of Fred and Ginger, Shirley Temple and other legends of stage and screen. Ilyse is always incredibly well prepared and professional. Her lectures have been a huge hit with our residents!

Just a note to tell you, Ilyse, and all involved in this Greater Boston Stage Company lecture series that I thoroughly enjoy the lectures, film clips, chronological outlines of the subject. I can't believe the quality of these presentations. The lecture was an element of joy for my day and week. God bless you, Ilyse, for what you do. Bringing joy to people's lives.
