I’ve Got To Go See A Man About A Wizard

Emily and her friend Samara are the perfect best friends. They are alike in so many ways, and different in so many as well. They shared a scene last night in their Wizard of Oz production; a scene I had seen them practice in our living room—and in Samara’s—about a…
