“Nine months to day after 9/11 and nine months to day before initiation of the Iraq War, I was waiting to cross the street at a busy Manhattan intersection near my apartment. I had stayed up late the night before putting the finishing touches on a press kit for a booking agent. And I really wanted this press kit in this agent’s hands as soon as possible, so I felt bringing it to him personally would be much more effective than waiting on the mail. It seemed to be a day just like any other.” The Studio Theatre
