Opening day. It's early on the West Coast, but I'll be heading to the theater shortly to do all four parts of GREAT MEN OF GENIUS. I'd like to take a moment to thank Tony, Susie and Les at Berkeley Rep for the opportunity to do this crazy piece--it's not every day that the folks in charge trust and love you enough to give you such an enormous canvas to succeed or fail on, and working here over the last few years has been a great blessing.
I'd also like to thank the tech crew, who have been stellar--I know damn well I'm not going to find the time to buy a card today, so I'll have to settle for buying you drinks, which I think you'd appreciate more anyway. You're dedicated artists of the theater, and your devotion to making this undertaking happen has been humbling and moving.
Now I pack up and head to the space--I have four shows to lock down before the first people come in through the doors. I'll see you all on the other side.
