    I am spending today, a rainy day, hanging out and listening to some Broadway tunes. At present, I am listening to "Company" by Stephen Sondheim. In my acting days, in college, I was in this show; so it holds a special appeal for me. This and a number of other shows that I was in are highly nostalgic for me.

    I knew in college that I was never going to pursue the life of an actor. I did end up in the business as a theater head electrician. Over the 38 year spent I saw, and worked on, around 5 musicals a year. I can't remember how many times I saw "Cats", but I never want to hear or see it again, the same goes for rent. A lot of the shows, though, do hold memories with them. I saw and heard many talented people over the years. I got to hang out with the likes of Werner Klempner "Colonel Klink" and Larry Storch of F-Troop fame. They were my two favorites. Mickey Rooney, on the other hand, was a true and total ass.

    I wondered if there were any Broadway fans on AK. What are your favorites?

    I'm sorry but the first thing I thought of when I read the message header was Kevin Kline in the movie In and Out.
    Having admitted that, you seemed to have had quite an interesting career in the business. "Broadway", when it comes up on Jeopardy usually evokes a groan from me. I'm just another southern "heathern".

    My folks wanted me to be a doctor or lawyer or such like. I fought back and ended up in the theater. I would never ask for a do over. Don't feel bad WS, I have no friends or family who like it either. I only play it when my wife is at bingo. :)
