So, here I am in beautiful downtown St Augustine Florida, guesting at The Limelight Theater which has been in existence for around 35 years. I am here, in fact, to do the most wonderful romantic story. It's so good it even won a Pulitzer Prize. "Love Letters" by A. R. Gurney, with a wonderful actor, Stephen Mitchell as my co-star and a dedicated director Grace Reed who brought it all to life. And, to the delight of all who came to see our production, I am oh-so-grateful for the many (and there were many) who came, because our limited run, well, our opening night was the "Super Bowl" and our closing two nights included going against a Valentines Day sold-out performance of 'Willie Nelson' at their big outdoor amphitheatre and one more thing: a Big Gala for First Coast Opera, with dining and dancing the night away in a 1920's theme at this very famous museum nearby in town.
Well, it didn't deter the romantics! Every night, they gave away certificates to the couples that were married the longest, and one night a couple married 62 years! Another night, a couple married 65 years! In Hollywood, they would have erected a building in their honor, because noone (as in noone) stays with the same husband, wife, agent, manager for that amount of time. The young. The young at heart. All were there because they wanted to be there, and trust me they got to see one great theatre piece, presented fullout by both myself and my co-star, for all its worth.

HAPPILY A TRIUMPH
I think I was on 'The Educating Rita Diet' without realizing it.
No - I know I was on 'The Educating Rita Diet.'
Both my co-star, Jack Rose and I had our appetites wane as our rehearsals progressed.
Fortunately (or unfortunately), while coming to one of our 14 rehearsals, Jack got there early one afternoon and found this fantastic ice cream store where they made their own ice cream. I don't even eat dairy and I went there three times in three weeks. And two scoops each time! If you're ever in Palm Coast, you have to go to Sweet Melissa's Homemade Ice Cream. FABulous! I'm just saying.
Honestly I don't think I have EVER said so much onstage as I did in this comedy-drama, "Educating Rita" by Willie Russell.
