It is 5 weeks before we begin performances at the Helen Hayes. I suspect there will be much more to say once the theater is actually ours. We load in on September 12th.

I will post from time to time, but I suspect "The Wiz" will be more regular. The Wiz is our production stage manager and a production report "lite" will be posted here most performance days. My contribution will be specific to events which are out of the ordinary or seem to me of a curious nature. I am accustomed to sending emails to friends about my day before I can sleep, so I will include you in that list.

I think this will be interesting. It is perhaps the first time a running commentary has been published on a Broadway show while it is in production. Usually one has to be related to a performer in the show to hear this inside scoop.

Tom Amundsen a good friend and funny writer passed away this year. He died the morning of the day he had purchesed tickets to see my show at the Brentwood theater in Los Angeles. I will end my postings the same way he used to end his emails as an homage to my friend - AS YOU WERE. Jay
