    Well, thanks. Last night was the dress rehearsal and it was really good, so I’m psyched.

    GO SANFORD!

    I won’t say break a leg because I am afraid of that but I will say, once more, how PROUD I am of your continued success and the perseverance and effort it has taken on your part.

    Go get them!!

      Maybe break a Legge, Sanford?

      This is tremendously exciting. In the past La C has indicated that she knows a few stars that contribute to these august pages, and perhaps some of you privately have an idea or two about who’s really who; but Sanford, so far as I know, you’re the first pro to do so transparently.

      Pride just took on a whole new layer of meaning.

      GO SANFORD!

    That’s great Sanford!!!!! We are all with you! You couldn’t have asked for better publicity even if you had hired Mary Lou Falcone!!!

    I hate stage fright.

    Thank you all for your good wishes. I hope some fo the NYC contingent are able to attend, even if they see other casts. All of the singers are wonderful.

    “The Don Bartolo of Sanford Schimel enlivened proceedings whenever present, with some of the most stylish singing of the evening. Admirable comic timing and sharp diction made his Bartolo a likable relative of some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s similarly pretentious protagonists. ”
