Editor’s Note: You may have noticed that “Missouri Girl” was playing at Asher’s Opera House the next Wednesday after this edition. The date was given as Jan. 15 in one location and Jan. 16 a few lines down. I have confirmed that it was Jan. 16. From my research so far, it appears that “The Missouri Girl” was a traveling play.
