We can’t wait to see our good friend TINA LIFFORD in the hit ABC TV show Scandal.  As you will recall, Tina brought her one-of-a-kind play, THE CIRCLE,  to The Alhambra Theatre last August.  As a fundraiser, proceeds from ticket sales benefitted women and girls in the greater Jacksonville community by way of the events held by Generation W and Generation WOW. “My sincere desire is that The Circle will be a catalyst that moves our audience into greater self-acceptance and the growing awareness that you are bigger than any challenge you face,” said Tina.   Click here to get a sneak peek of her on the set via her Twitter feed.
