What did you star in? Anything we would know?
Never “starred in anything. Mostly worked in Washington and Oregon, usually found in the cast list as “member of the company. Was in productions of Fiddler on the Roof, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, Arsenic and Old Lace, H. m. S Pinafore, The Mikado, some others. Also was assistant director for a couple of things (which means I was first flunkie.)

Dear bbfreeburn:

That's certainly a list of good productions.

I loved (and still do) acting and live theatre. Some of you may suspect that I have taken various drugs in my life but nothing, absolutely nothing beats the rush you get when the curtain goes up and you go onstage. The only thing close is when the curtain comes down and the audience rises for a standing ovation.

Speaking of theatre, if the world ever becomes normal again treat yourself and your family to a Broadway play. Nobody does it better. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may wet your pants, but you will also enjoy great art, great technical skill, and be moved in ways you may not expect.

We used to enjoy various small playhouse productions around the Indianapolis area when we lived there. I don't remember ever being disappointed in the entertainment.

I recall a small cabaret out in the middle of nowhere - Boggstown to be exact, that was a neat little spot.

Dear bbfreeburn:

Of course, theater-going is "on pause" in many instances because of COVID, but my wife and I greatly enjoy many local and area theater productions. We absolutely love going to Broadway Palm Dinner Theater in Fort Myers (about 60 miles south of us), and we've seen many famous Broadway plays and musicals (along with other theater fare) performed by professional actors and musicians there.

We've also gone out of town -- to such venues as Ruth Eckerd Performing Arts Hall and Francis Wilson Playhouse in Clearwater, Largo Cultural Center in Largo, Naples Playhouse in Naples and Polk Theater in Lakeland -- and we've also attended first-class theaters right here in Sarasota (Florida Studio Theater, the highly-acclaimed Asolo Repertory Theater, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, The Players, etc.).

So yes, as you say, if the world ever becomes normal again, we'll be treating ourselves to some great theater.
