Broadway Flop-dom

Sat, 09/03/2011 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

What I did during my summer vacation

So ends the busiest, most inspirational summer of my adult life!  In the last three months, I’ve been privileged to walk through St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, to watch otters swimming in the St. Lawrence River, and to hear barihunk Nathan Gunn singing “Home on the Range” at the Glimmerglass Festival.
