What is a favorite memory from this season?

From my own show: Writing a new song with Jason Robert Brown overnight, playing it for Billy Crystal the next afternoon, and putting it in the show. Friday night Shabbat backstage at Mr. Saturday Night hosted by Shoshana Bean, replete with candle, challah, Manischewitz, with the cast and crew, Jews and non-Jews alike, joining in. The first audience at dress rehearsal and hearing waves of laughter.
