A Mini-Post on my other blog:


This one is a “one off” post….

I’ll never forget seeing Marin Mazzie sing “Back to Before” in “Ragtime” on Broadway back in 1998 at the, then, Ford Center.

It was a “Broadway Moment” that one always hopes for where art comes home to you and you relate your life to the character’s and start to think…
