|Ann Randolph as Frannie Potts
As we settle into our seats in the intimate setting of San Francisco’s The Marsh, a familiar greeting echoes out of the dark, warning us to buckle up and refrain from our electronic devices until we reach our cruising altitude. Clearly we are about to be airlifted into a journey of some sort, but none of us could ever predict the heart-warming laughs – and heartfelt tears – this trip across America will soon bring us all in Ann Randolph’s reprise of her 2010 hit, Loveland.
