"This was my introduction to Sondheim. I remember it was a cold New Year's. At 22 it felt like a magical adventure to go to a Broadway show by myself. Larry Kert was incredibly powerful. Not surprising, how alone Bobby was really resonated with me that night. At the end of the performance, once the house had almost cleared, I walked from my seat and peered down into the orchestra pit. I made myself a promise. I would be on Broadway one day. Within a year I was, in Ambassador with Howard Keel. At the Lunt-Fontanne, no less, where I had first met Mary Martin."
