QUILTERS, which could be dubbed Quilters 101, is not only a workshop of the role of material and sewing in the early days of this country, but a history lesson of the experiences of the women who helped settle the Midwest.  Don't expect big chorus numbers or show stoppers, or to come out humming the score.  This is just a pleasant slice of old-time life and makes for a nice way to spend a summer evening and the return of live theater.

"Quilters" is a beautiful little musical that celebrates the perseverance, love and relationships of pioneer women, now playing at Porthouse Theatre in Cuyahoga Falls.

The show's opening night, which played to a house about 80% full, was a joyous occasion marking the return of live theater to the summer venue after a pandemic hiatus last summer.

Live theater is finally back and none too soon. Porthouse has chosen a pertinent musical that we can all relate to after the many months of isolation that we experienced. It is an uplifting message of hope that we all need to hear right now.

Even though the material shows some mismatched rows and wavy borders, there's plenty of comfort to be had in the stories of these hardy women.
