I wanted to say hello and let you know what I’m up to. I’m the Assistant Director on BRIGHT STAR, the new musical that opens on Broadway next month written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell and directed by Walter Bobbie. We had a great run at the Kennedy Center over the holidays and start rehearsals for Broadway in just a few weeks. I hope you get a chance to see it while it’s running. It’s been an incredibly rewarding creative experience – and it¹s just icing on the cake that the show is set in Asheville, Hayes Creek, and Zebulon, NC!
