What is a favorite memory from this season?

My favorite memory of this season had to do with community. So many dear friends made their Broadway debuts or second outings this year as playwrights and actors. From the very end of last summer until the beginnings of this one, I got to witness and take part in standing ovations in giant, gilded houses for these artists that for years I’d seen conjure magic in basements and tiny black boxes. For many of us, it meant being amplified to a level where few stories like ours had ever gotten to be.
