What is a favorite memory from this season?

Sitting with my daughter, watching her godfather, Mark Lotito, charm the entire audience at the Schubert Theatre in Some Like It Hot. Siena has grown up in this business, and the greatest joy is sitting in a theatre with my kid—now my much younger best friend—as the lights go down and we applaud our circle of friends and family.
