What is a favorite memory from this season?

Opening Pass Over at the August Wilson Theatre on August 4, 2021. It was such a beautiful and inspiring moment in my life that I’ll never forget. Being part of the team that reopened Broadway and shared the newest version of my play with our theater community. Broadway is back in part because of the hard work, talent, and dedication of our fabulous company.
