I was pregnant with my son, Jack, as we were workshopping Seussical, and gave birth conveniently so that I could do the play. Being a new and exhausted mother, Lynn and Steve were kind enough to invite us both to rehearsals. So there I was carrying my son in his baby sling while joyously romping around stage. I will always be indebted to them for that. Well, that, and their genius. Their generosity of spirit is infectious and resonates in everything they create. I love them dearly.
