Both Tony and Christina are blessed in my memory of this show from 1986, as are the rest of the cast. It was my first time to direct on TM's Mainstage, so it was special, and wonderful to get to work with Jay, Kermit and Andre. Thank you, Chris, for the souvenir.
Dorothy and I first worked together when were in the same play, in the same room but at different times: Plaza Suite in 1972 or thereabouts. She immediately became my friend, as she did with everyone she ever worked with. She appeared in the first play I directed on the Main Stage (now the Lohrey Stage) at Theatre Memphis--The Heiress in 1986, and in several more recent others, such as GCT's Cemetery Club and TM's Morning's at Seven . I never had to give her the same note twice. After Steve and I moved, we continued to stay in occasional touch. I missed her then and I miss her now.
