What's Next, Michael?

As my readers probably know, the Broadway production of "Rebecca - The Musical" was delayed indefinitely last September, just as rehearsals were about to begin. While the authorities and some journalists are trying to find out who was the mastermind behind the criminal activities that caused the downfall of the production, the victims lick their wounds. I have many regrets, and probably the greatest is that we lost a fantastic cast and a dream team, headed by the legendary Australian director, Michael Blakemore. I still hope we will work together some day soon. Until then I am gratefully remembering the creative discussions we had. Among the experiences we shared was that people in the theater are always asking "What are you doing next?". Michael explained that to me: "For us theater people there is not much safety in the present, none in the past, but in the future it can at least be imagined."

    Break a leg, dear Michaels!
