Patrick Morgan works for a Twin Cities media company and has been a singer and actor for the last ten years. Patrick was thoroughly entertained by "Zanna, Don't!" the latest production of Minneapolis Musical Theater. In the world of "Zanna, Don't!" homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuals are considered 'deviants.' By the way, Patrick's wife, who isn't a theater enthusiast like her husband, loved the show too.
