We officially Opened Ernie last night at the City Theatre in Detroit! A big red-carpet opening, it was a ton of fun. I’m really proud of all the work everyone’s done on the show – it’s been an exciting adventure getting it open, and a real treat to combine my love of theatre and my love of baseball in a piece honoring a truly wonderful human being!
And in our first review, from Encore Michigan, the reviewer John Quinn compares my handling of a baseball play to the way Sparky Anderson handled a baseball team!
Tony Caselli, artistic director of the Williamston Theatre, manages this team with the skill of a Sparky Anderson. The effect is clean, lean and absorbing.
Best. Compliment. Ever! 🙂
Thanks so much for all of that. That means a ton to me. And whenever anyone asks, I’m proud to say that it was at Huron, and HCT, that I discovered my love of the theatre and the discipline and desire to do it well – and at the same time treat people well! 🙂
