And I didn't do it alone. (Okay, I did see four of those shows all by myself.) I would like to take this opportunity to thank friends and family members who have shared all the laughs, tears, and thrills of seeing live theater. Special thanks to my friends Mike, Nancy and Val, who shared most of that time with me.
It all started on a summer afternoon way back in 1983 at the age of 17, when my drama teachers took a small group of us to see our first Broadway show. Over my years in high school, working on shows and being in them made me appreciate the art form, and seeing that first show inspired in me a lifetime passion for it.
