I received an email from my college roomate. It has been 28 years since we graduated from college, and we still try to stay in touch. He was a religion and history major in school with an avid interest in music, theater and comic books. I was a Math/Computer major with an interest in girls and role playing games. How the two of us ever got along is a mystery to me. I was on stage once and vowed never to do it again.
Today, I’m a computer nerd (yes, I get paid for that), father and theater geek. He is a minister in Chicago and hasn’t been on stage since College. I’ve been in many shows since 1997, and I’m involved in another as I write this. The email from my roommate today was a surprise for me. He tried out for a local Chicago production of Cinderella. He got the role of the King. He always had a wonderful singing voice and good acting skills. I may just have to make the trip to Chicago to watch it.
Anyone up for a roadtrip?
