Performance? Well that would be Mink DeVille at the Roxy in L.A. Willy DeVille walked out on stage and lit up a cigarette. That's all he had to do for me.

My most exciting night I ever spent in the theatre? Easy. A one-night-only benefit concert honoring the Museum of the City of New York starring Mary Martin and Ethel Merman. These two stars standing on a Broadway stage belting out every hit they ever had. A priceless memory.

Brian Dennehy in Salesman and Liam Neeson in The Crucible.

Howard McGillin
Lily Tomlin's The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In The Universe. Changed my life, literally.
