TT: We'll see
Satchmo at the Waldorf wrapped up its third successive (and successful) run on Sunday afternoon at Philadelphia's Wilma Theater. I wish I had something brilliantly appropriate to say, but I don't. I'm simply grateful to my wonderful collaborators, John Douglas Thompson and Gordon Edelstein foremost among them, and to the three theater companies that dared to take a chance on a first-time playwright.
What comes next? I wish I could tell you, but things are still very much up in the air as of this moment. What I can say is that the success of Satchmo to date has already outstripped my wildest dreams. No matter what may lie ahead, I'm proud and satisfied beyond measure.
To all who came to see Satchmo in Lenox, New Haven, or Philadelphia, my heartfelt thanks for helping to make it the experience of a lifetime. I hope you enjoyed it half as much as I did!
