Having been to the Baltimore show last weekend where there was alot of bar chatter, it was wonderful to be able to embrace this performance in the beautiful State Theater. Ethel, Joe and Todd were all great, however in speaking to some fans that were at both the Philly and NJ shows, the majority felt that Todd's performance was better in Philly. This show was indeed video recorded for future dvd release. Todd wearing his goldish colorful jacket, told us he bought new shoes for the occasion.
