Goodness! I almost forgot. After all my agonizing and believing I would never work in opera again after turning down a couple jobs for Steppenwolf, I'm going to Michigan in March a couple weeks after my current show ends to do an opera. There was a moment of indecision when I was offered a local theater gig shortly after being offered the opera gig, but I'm sticking with the opera for reasons that are too boring to go into. And I feel good about it, despite the fact that my buddy who wanted me to stage manage the dance gig he's producing in April hates me for backing out on him.
He'll be back.
