  1. Taylor this is genius! Some legendary names in this production like Del Close, Jack Burns, Avery Schrieber, etc. And Severn Darden?!? I never knew he did comedy 'back in the day'!
    I'm sorry I missed this the first time around, but glad that your links are still working.
    Thank you so much for this, Taylor.
