Can i just say that? Gary took over for a week of performances from John Prosky this past Wednesday through Sunday so John could shoot another episode of THE MEDIUM in Hollywood. Gary knocked the role of Walter Franz out of the park! He brought vigor, fire, thoughtfulness and drive to bring new colors to what was already an extremely compelling rendering in John’s most capable hands. Robert and Andy Prosky seemed energized and delighted by the new injection. John returns this week to the role. He may or may not be called out to the Coast one more time. Gary’s five performances were just terrific. And they brought good box office news as well. 4 of the 5 shows sold out! And the word of mouth?
In a word: Ecstatic.
Some really great comments at yesterday’s panel discussion as well.
And now The Forward is calling, following up on the American Theatre Magazine cultural boycott survey controversy. They’ll have a story about the story, it appears, within a week.
