What is a favorite memory from this season?

A favorite memory of mine from the season would be on opening night of Almost Famous, watching as Joni Mitchell, an artist who I revere, walked down the aisle to take her seat and attend what I would find out later, was her very first Broadway show—a show I had created with another one of my heroes, Cameron Crowe. Joni is an iconic artist whose music has spoken to me and countless others, quite profoundly, and the fact that she has been so effusive and supportive of our show has been an unbelievable gift.
