The timing couldnt have been more perfect. Rod and I were in California celebrating our anniversary, my stepdads birthday, and a needed vacation. Just by CHANCE, South Hills High School was doing Into the Woods again. A few of us from the Encore! cast reunited again and went to see the show. It was like full circle full circle. We performed the show in high school, re-performed it on Encore, then watched a whole new generation do it in the same theatre. The show was fantastic. The kids were fantastic. And I may have even cried a little. So much emotion from so many different things. Then, as a surprise, the teacher asked if we would like to speak to the drama classes. Two days later, Billy, Dan, and I talked about the encore experience, then I got to talk to the kids about working as an actor/writer in NYC.
