Loose Leaves Pile Together – CLTure, Audrey Baran, October 2015. “The upcoming concert will mark the first anniversary of Loose Leaves, and also demonstrates the production’s relatively quick success. Previous venues for the showcase held 50 chairs, and in the last show this spring, both weekend evening performances were standing room only. By moving to the Duke Energy Theater, Mable Stamp is allowing the scope of Loose Leaves to continue to grow in terms of quality of work presented and breadth of its audiences.”
