Greetings from the Big Apple

I'm in New York for the opening tonight of Can't Live Without You at the Manhattan Rep. I flew up this morning from Miami to La Guardia (Jeb Bush was on the flight, busily typing away on his laptop up in first class) and now I'm ensconced in a nice hotel right off Times Square and a couple of blocks from the theatre.

A lot of people have asked if I'm excited about this lifetime moment. I think I'm numb right now because other than some e-mails and a few phone calls, I've not really been involved with the rehearsal process and the production itself. That's as it should be; the playwright has to trust the director, the actors, and the play itself and let them find their own way. It is in their capable hands and now I get to see what they have wrought.

Anyway, here we go. And if there are any Shakers in town, let me know and maybe we can meet up.
