Small Off Broadway theaters and theatre companies have always been the estuary in which new and experimental work flourished. There used to be so many, and now, only a handful survive. And we are all the poorer for it.
A few days ago, we gathered again in O’Lunny’s, a midtown bar, and talked and drank and visited and sang together again. So many good friends. So many warm and happy memories.
I just hope I don’t have to wait 20 more years to visit and sing with them all again.
