Theres a kid in the middle of nowhere who’s sitting there sitting living for tony performances, singing and flipping along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys, Matildas and Mormonses. So we might reassure that kid. And do something to spur that kid. Cause I promise you all of us up here tonight, we were that kid.
