    Ok, so I’ll start. My list won’t be comprehensive or in any particular order, but here are some of my most memorable experiences in the theatre:

    1. King Lear, at the Old Globe in 1973, with Ken Ruta and Sandy McCallum. Directed by Edward Payson Call.
    2. Kennedy’s Children, by Robert Patrick, performed in a London pub in 1975.
    3. Follies, at the Winter Garden Theatre, 1971 – my first show seen in a Broadway theatre.
    4. Cabaret – pretty much every version I’ve seen.
    5. Sweeney Todd – Kennedy Center, with the late Jane Pesci Townsend, who went on for Christine Baranski and knocked ’em dead.
    6. Merrily We Roll Along – 1983 production at the Roland Dupree Studio in Los Angeles got this difficult show as right as I’ve ever seen it.
    7. A Chorus Line – the show I’ve probably seen more than any other. The first time (in LA) was the most magical.
    8. Henry IV, Part 2 (Le Theatre du Soleil), The Tempest (Piccolo Teatro di Milano), and Six Characters in Search of an Author (American Repertory Theatre), all part of the great 1984 LA Olympic Arts Festival.
    9. Angels in America – every time I see it.
    10. Jersey Boys – three times at La Jolla Playhouse – definitely a guilty pleasure.
