Caller: Our Problems Stem From Not Embracing Jesus Christ

"Well, I totally agree with you. The problems all stem from us not embracing Jesus Christ. We have stripped him from our schools, as you said. But since COVID, we've stripped him from our life. Don't go to church. Go to church. Don't go to church. Remember at the beginning of COVID, go to church, but don't sing. That was the best one. Well, fly with me because I'm a musician and I'm a vocalist. But on my heart and well, let me on that point, phase. If you don't mind, I'd hate to take your time, but I'm going to respond to something because you just talked about COVID and stripping away faith and going to church. I had a friend, Washington state, Broadway actor, very successful Broadway actor. And he was told by his governor, you can go to church during this COVID era, but you can't sing. And he tweeted a very simple thing. I'm sorry, I respectfully will sing to the lord and make a joyful noise. I'm not going to comply. He got fired from his hit Broadway show. Fired. The rest of the cast felt unsafe. Oh my gosh, Chad Kimball wants to sing in church. He lost his job. He sued them since I don't know what the disposition of the lawsuit is, but that's the reaction from people. How dare you say you want to sing in church? You need to be canceled. Goodbye, God. Goodbye singing. Goodbye church.

NY bill would stop MSG from kicking out enemy lawyers

"A New York State bill would stop entertainment venues from kicking out enemies. New York City's Madison Square Garden and other sports venues could be barred from refusing entry to perceived enemies of their owners under a bill introduced in the New York State legislature seeking to amend a current state law. The plan is to add sporting events to the list of public places of entertainment that can not refuse entry to people that arrive with a valid ticket. The original law without that clause was intended to stop Broadway venues from blocking theater critics that they didn't like. The garden and other notable venues announced several people recently using facial recognition technology, the technology has been used to stop a New Jersey mom from accompanying her daughter on a girl scouts filled trip and barred an attorney who owned New York Knicks tickets from attending the game.

How Liberal Christianity Invaded the Catholic Priesthood

"My Catholic high school was entirely taken over by heretical post Catholics of the kind who today are hanging rainbow flags in churches. And in not just in Catholic churches, but United methodist churches and Lutheran and Presbyterian churches and episcopal churches. Liberal Christianity had invaded the ranks of the Catholic priesthood and of the Catholic bishops. What I always say was the priesthood became dominated by the gays who weren't smart enough to work directly for the Democratic Party, couldn't dance, couldn't sing wouldn't have a career on Broadway, but they wanted to live in the palace like the Disney Princess, they always secretly knew that they were. So they signed up for the Catholic priesthood. And they got ordained and they got made bishops. We had hoped that Pope John Paul the second and Pope Benedict would clean these people out. They created the sex abuse crisis and they covered it up. They tried to stop the church from fighting for unborn life. And instead, they wanted to support groups like Black Lives Matter, they created something called the Catholic campaign for human development, which was invented by Saul alinsky, which was designed to turn the Catholic Church into a leftist tool of radical social change. They replaced traditional Christianity with squishy, leftist politics, and sexual libertinism.

Steve Gill: Trump 2.0 Was Undercut by His Latest 'Announcement'

"That he would be wanting to do whatever was necessary to repair his image with the independence and some of those conservative Democrats of any are left, and I'm not sure this kind of stuff actually does it. It's another one step forward two steps back is announcement that he was running was spot on in terms of tone and temperament and content. And it was like, okay, Trump two. Has shown he's learned. He's going to become a new Trump that's not going to be his blustery is not going to be focused only on the path. He's going to be looking forward. He's going to show a different tone and do what it takes to win those independent young voters. Suburban women that are not in his camp. And you can not win general elections with just the Trump base. Now, like you thought, I'm a huge Trump fan. I love his policy. I'm not as offended by his bluff and bluster and behavior, but others are. And the others that are really offended by it are the ones critical to winning general elections. And I think the problem is that Trump two we saw in the announcement has now been completely undercut by this new major announcement that just again takes all the wind out of whatever push he had after the announcement. And I think just again, one step forward two steps back. I have friends who are getting 5 or 6 emails every other day from Don Junior begging for money. It's like, what are they wanting money for? And why is Don Junior putting money into his pocket or his pack or Kimberly Guilfoyle again, it looks like the worst excesses, at least they're doing it publicly, but it looks like the worst excesses of the Biden prime family when they're just kind of just money grubbing. We're looking for cash that isn't really doing anything to elect Republican candidates, promote the policies and values that he stands for. And I think, again, it's not just this episode, but it's all the people around you and they look like their money grub and using his name. And

Steve Gill: Is Trump Serious About Running for President?

"I just don't get it. Is he really serious about running for The White House? You think this guy's really going to run? I think it's less likely today after his big major announcement that turns out to be a $99 digital trading card featuring him with photographs looking like Superman or super Trump. I mean, again, why on earth would he or anybody surrounding him that might have the ability to speak to him, allow him to do something that makes him look like a carnival grifter, which is the caricature that he has been portrayed as. Why prove their point? And it just, it is complete nonsense. He's getting justifiable blowback, not just because of the creepy business prospect of this thing. But because he teased a major announcement that is nothing but, you know, I hope, I hope you send me money to put more money in my pocket, particularly in the wake of the midterm elections, where at least one of his packs raised like $92 million for he and his family and didn't spend it on campaign. Again, he is, he is proving himself to be the grifter he's been accused of being. And I think that Ron DeSantis is doing it exactly right. Sit back, let Trump be Trump and he's going to destroy his own prospects

Film Festival Submission Fee Required for White Woman at Barnard

"Film festival, that's happening in the spring. So this is the Barnard college division at Columbia, which is the private women's school. So this is the school for gals. And anyway, they charge a fee and you get to see all these great movies. But in this instance, it's not good if you happen to be a person of the Caucasian persuasion. So the festival is a project of the leadership at Barnard college and women and Hollywood. Included among the entry requirements for the film festival, the films must have a woman or women characters and leadership roles or positions. That's one of the, that's like rule number one. So what happens if you want to identify them? I mean, if you want to be a transgender, filmmaker, I guess they would have to accept you, right? Anyway, they charge $14 to submit to the film festival. All right? So if you want to have your film considered, you got to write them a check. You got to send them some cash $14. And it's a non refundable fee too. But here's the kick in the pants. Only white people will have to pay the price. Only white people. And recognition of the extra barriers that buy walk artist by sexual women of color, I don't know. I'm guessing here. Oh no, it's black indigenous women of color. I thought it was bisexual. Folks, it's hard to keep up with all of this.

Caller Reacts to Report of RNC Spending Habits

"Just wanted to comment about the money going to the political parties. And I'm talking about Democrat Andrew publican. I believe anybody that's making contributions to a political party in this political environment. Instead of an individual candidate, they aren't making campaign contributions. They're just paying into a play to pay the price scheme, so you think exactly what they're doing. So unless you give money, you're not gonna have the access. Well, they're paying they're paying more. I'm saying they're the reason they do pay money to political parties is to have access. Well, that's a parent. They are trying to get a certain type of person elected, they won't max as to the pay to play scheme. That's going out. That's what our whole government is run like today is a pay to play scheme. You know, Steve, all I can, all I can say about this, you know, the issue here is that they're squandering the money. So the RNC has no interest in getting people elected who are Republicans. They're more about this country club mentality, and trust me, I know all about I know all about that on the local level is that people are more interested in throwing a great party than running a great campaign. Well, I think what I believe, if we had something like a true Department of Justice, most of what is going on in Washington today that they are defining as legislation could be prosecuted under the retail act as racketeering.

School Board President Invited Students to 'Dirty Santa' Fundraiser

"A crazy story out of California, where a superintendent of schools is now out of a job. He was not fired, and I want you to, when you hear this story, I want you to understand the superintendent the school board president was not fired for hosting a an adult themed gay Christmas party that featured mael strippers wearing Santa hats, a dirty Santa Claus, and an open bar. Now look, if you're an adult and you want to throw a party like that for fellow adults, hey, it's your money, your house, do whatever, do whatever you want to do. But when you invite the high school corral to your gay adult party with the dirty Santa Claus. That's a problem. Cut number three. Shirtless men and alcohol is what one parent says his teenage daughter was exposed to during an educator's private holiday party. They were offered an open bar and to socialize with the half naked men. The dirty Santa that offered and made disgusting comments to our children. Gabriel lozano's daughter is one of more than a dozen high school choir students who were hired to perform at the December 3rd party, hosted by Claremont unified school board president Steven lansa. Lozano says the students were told to arrive early, but that's when the night took an unexpected turn. The news included. To mingle. With these people. Police now investigating the incident and confirming to NBC News, they are looking into this photo of half naked men, allegedly posing with adult at that party. That has been circulated by parents.

What Has the RNC Been Spending Money On?

"Now we have ronna mcdaniel, and according to red state, they've been given a report that has examined the RNC's spending for 2021. Are you ready for this folks? This is what your money. If you've been giving money to the RNC, if you've been giving money to the Republican Party, this is what that money has been used for. More than a half a $1 million in private jets. $64,000 at clothing stores. $321,000 in floral arrangements. This is pretty remarkable. Food and beverage $65,000. Alcohol, $36,000, kind of thought that would be higher. Spa and cosmetics, $7500, is that how much it costs for lipstick and powder over at the Walmart? Vehicle and other maintenance expenses $4900, and something called LGBTQ+ filings, $1200 and 67 cents. That's rather a specific amount. Now, this is pretty fascinating because they were able to go back through and just take a look at what ronna mcdaniel has been spending over at RNC headquarters since she said she took charge. $3.1 million on private jet services since 2017. $1.3 million on limousine service, $17.1 million on donor mementos. Is that the stuff you get like the swag is that that must be what that's about. $17.1 million.

Trump Sells $99 NFT Trading Cards of Himself

"Speculating on the big announcement, the major announcement that president Trump was going to be making today, and of course there are a lot of big things happening in the nation. A lot of big decisions that have to be made and we were very excited to share with you that news that president Trump would be making a major announcement. And the president teasing that announcement by saying that America needed a superhero. We did not realize that the president was actually being literal that he actually meant that America needed a superhero. And a little while ago, the president made the announcement. Public and there was a lot of speculation. Was he going to throw his name in the hat for Speaker of the House? No, that turned out not to be it. Was he going to file a lawsuit against the federal government? No, that was not it at all. Was he going to announce his running mate for 2024? No, that was not it either. No it turns out that that president Trump is launching a trading card collection. And it's called the Donald Trump digital trading card collection and it features amazing art of his life and career. I'm reading this from the official major announcement that all of America was waiting for. You can collect all your favorite Trump digital trading cards very much like a baseball card. But hopefully much more exciting. They have a website and I'm not going to share the website because he's not paying for advertising on this. But you can probably Google it. But it is going to cost $99. A piece. That's right, $99, and he says it would make a great Christmas gift. Don't wait, they will be gone. I believe very quickly.

Maybe my theater influence is spreading around team Gallagher. I am in New York for the big Salem New York Christmas party today. And I saw production that is theater heaven. I went to the Saturday matinee a funny girl over at the August Wilson theater, Lea Michele plays the role of fanny Bryce. It's the single greatest theatrical performance I've ever seen. And believe you me, I've seen them all. You know me, I go to the I go to shows all the time. I'm a frustrated actor. I love to perform. But to see an artist like Lea Michele, you may know her from the TV show glee, she's accomplished musical theater, actress. She's been performing on Broadway since she was a little girl. She was in the original production of ragtime. I saw that. She was a little girl. She grew up and became this big TV star, and now she's killing it. As Fannie Bryce, 7 times a week, in funny girl. Yes, she takes off Thursdays. There's an understood. It's a tough role.

She said it's become a family tradition of ours to watch the thermometer on your prison fellowship, angel tree campaign go up, up, up, we love listening to how you worry about hitting your big goal, you always hit the goal with the love and support of your listeners. You know we've got now 2037 kids sponsored to send Christmas presents and bibles and messages from their incarcerated parents. In just a few days, we've raised over $50,000. It's so fun to watch this and to hear from illyana and the Rio Grande valley like that. Say that it's become a Christmas tradition because you can see the progress when you go to the site. When you go to Mike online dot com and click on that angel tree banner at the top of the page. Again, the ask is simple. $50 will bless two children. You'll be able to send a Christmas gift that the child believes is coming from their parent who is in prison. They'll also get a Bible and a personalized message from their dad or their mom to these children on Christmas. $25 a child, I had a number of people donated a thousand this week. We're going to call them to thank them personally for their donation. Whatever you can afford, and I got a trip that I might be putting together to see a Broadway hit, great seats for a show that you can't get tickets for. I mean, 'cause the star of this particular show, I'm not even supposed to say what it is yet, because we haven't finalized the details. It's going to come together quickly if we do it.

The Left Mocks Christianity With No Fear

"Several BYU fans in attendance Saturday told universe sports that they found the skid upsetting and rude for its inclusion of sacred temple themes. See, if you say that men do not give birth at Stanford, you are held in such contempt that you might lose your job if you're not a tenured professor. And if you are a student, you will be ostracized and condemned. But if you, if you use terminology from the Mormon church and use it to mock the church, that's fine. It's like the book of Mormon, the famous Broadway play. The cowards who made the book of Mormon would never have done the book of the Quran. Never. They mock people who won't hurt them. That is the reason the left max Christians. They never mock Muslims. They know Christians won't hurt them. It's as simple as that. Cowardice is at the heart of leftism. Cowardice is at the heart of the university, if you're not a coward, you do not qualify as a dean. Or as a president of a university.

Great kid, he produces the Macy's parade, also the firework show, he does great work, but I don't want to see drag queens, JoJo, what are we doing here? I'm gonna reach out and ask him what the hell, look, maybe he comes up from way up high because he produces a shell, but it could be people above him going, hey, we need this thing here. You know, every year the Macy's Thanksgiving parade always features some of New York's Broadway plays to be featured. I don't want to see grown men dressed as women and looking like freaks, by the way. While the family is all together to give thanks. Why do we need this? You got why not kids looking with wonder as the massive floats go down the streets of New York City. Spider-Man. This SpongeBob. They're stupid. And then what is this? Oh, another opportunity to make sure the whole world gives thanks to the LGBTQ people. Why? Why are we always doing this?

‘Lion King’ Sign-Language Interpreter Says He Was Fired Over Race

"There is a Supreme Court ruling back in 1976 that white people could sue under a statute that was that was passed in a law back during the reconstruction era post Civil War. Now that law was intended to protect former slaves, but they believe that this law could also benefit white people who are now being fired for the color of their skin. Mister WAN told the New York Post, hey, this is wrong. This is discrimination. He said, if you insert a different color, if you insert a different race it is wrong, you are not allowed to fire somebody because of that reason. So according to the emails, and by the way, Disney is not commenting on any of this, but according to the email, they said only black sign language interpreters were going to be allowed. That's it. I mean, look, if that's the new rule, on Broadway, that you can only that an actor can an actor has to be the skin color of the character he is portraying, then all I can say is the folks at Hamilton have a great big problem on their hands. I mean, the whole shtick of Hamilton is, you got a bunch of people of color playing our founding fathers, and I hate to break it to you, ladies and gentlemen. But the founding fathers were a bunch of lily white honkies. I'm just saying. Well, there you go. Good luck to you, mister Wayne, and I hope you sue the living daylights out of them. All right,

No, but so the point is that you, so you're telling us the story of what happened a year ago that you're invited to guildhall, which I know well in east Hampton. And they find out or they ask you, oh, you have to be vaccinated. And you said, well, I'm not vaccinated. So I'm not going to do it. Page 6 of the New York Post, not a fan of page 6, folks.

And suddenly you're dealing with this media firestorm. That's it. That just spread like wildfire. And I immediately lost four other jobs that I had been associated to that were upcoming. And the vaccination status is one thing. But what actually happened is I feel like these jobs were lost because no one could no longer associate with me because of this choice. And New York is very one sided. The theater industry, especially, is very one sided. And if you don't pair it a certain narrative, there are super tolerant until you maybe think a different way about the world. And then you're the enemy.

"Don't know how great it was because to be honest, I couldn't hear a lick of it. So I'm just gonna have to go over to your Instagram page and take a look at it. I love that. Why couldn't you hear a lick of it? I couldn't hear. I don't really have the mic up to the speaker. The idea was there. Maybe it's going to come through if it's not we're going to have to edit that down. But go to your go to your trading the trading secrets or your Instagram page to watch that. But my guess is it's like every time that we shared a hotel room or been on the road or a trip together, I'm guessing it sounds just like it does when you're in the shower, but Hamilton everybody every shower you've ever taken in your life. I think I've seen this show, honestly, I saw it with the original performers. I've had to see it now 6, 7 times. So he was Alexander Hamilton in the Chicago show from 16 to 20. My first Broadway show ever was Hamilton in Chicago. No, so you've seen him live. I've seen him live. Yeah, the first one, ash and I ever went to was in 2018 in Chicago. He's so good in his energy is so next level. I talk about just like a small town Canadian kid stumbling into a Broadway show and it being Hamilton not knowing what to expect. I like, it's almost one of those things like Broadway theater where you're walking in the theater and it's really easy to feel out of place. Like, don't know how to react. I don't know what the theater is gonna look like, didn't realize how small I'm intimate some of these theaters are, was blown away by the energy blown away by the theater of it, blown away by just the professionalism. It was incredible. And now I've seen it twice. And I mean it when I say it, that I think they have these office job and entertainment. Like there's schedule is relentless and the way they have to sing and dance and act and be live and engage. It is ruthless that schedule. I need them more in Apple watches or like fitbits and finding out how many calories they burn per show because it's electric too. And even he said, look, I've done 1800 to 2000 performances. It's every much a bit apart like I go to my job. I'm a good days and bad days. But he was just saying when he gets on that stage and he feels the energy and people stand up and applaud for him at the end of the day. You don't get that in your day to today a lot. So like doing it 2000 times, you still see the energy and the joy of just belting that out and performing it. It's an unbelievable show. If you haven't gone, I know it's been around forever. You have to go. Yeah, it is so good. I also love that concept he talked about how many times he failed. You don't realize like these guys don't have these contracts where they're locked in for life. It's another misconception I think in the media industry. He was just assumed. He's Alexander Hamilton, must be caked up for life. He's crying, and he's still grinding, and I love his story about how he knew that Broadway was for him, but monetarily, it wasn't working out. He got sent back to Dallas. It had his ex or whatever, the fling was, given the wake-up kelp. Like ring his bell, like, dude, what the hell are you doing? I think if you're home thinking, what the hell am I doing?

I wanna take wanna do the rules that like i'm going to do. The biographic rolls royce. I'm representing somebody in in real life. Where i can. I have things to pull from an stories of from. And i can talk to people about them and try to get information about them to make this really well shaped and rounded character. Um you know like a swaggie thug or drug dealer you know. It's it's kind of like your mind. Goes to one thing and that's all it is and so i try to stay away from those roles. Because they're very stereotypical and usually cast as black people are cast as and moorland spanish or hispanics. And it's just like you know that's not that's not all there is an surrounding. That just sort of stereotypical character and so I definitely take pride in saying those those roles and trying to do more roles that are like ooh. Like i've never seen a black actor or Minority actor do aroma. This so like. I try to do those things. So i can branch out and like you said like i'm representing. Even though i don't i'm not representing black men and or minority men in like a like directly. Whatever i do. I'm representing them. You know and so. I try to take that with pride and i try to like. Hold that strong to me and know that like whatever i do.

Even if it's just shouting like what am i gonna say and you know in my head i thought. Oh i'm gonna sound so you know you know eloquent and put together and i'm going to be like wow didn't you so much for talking about your depression. So as he's getting in his car in the car and you know. I'm like this is your moment. Just whatever you're going to show you're gonna shout it now. All now is just like and i'm like all right. Well whatever so worked but it was just it was such a surreal experience so just beyond anything that i could have ever imagined and then immediately after the show so i walked back to the hotel and i walked back with one of the like spring. That little cuties. Laurie who actually got one of the guitar picks from that show ice. So i was very very excited for her and i was telling her on our walk back like you know like i'm so so genuinely happy for you so glad that this that you had such like a personal experience like that's so cool you know and she was like you know she's like thank you she's like and i know you really mean it. And then she. She brought up the whole. You know nobody wins unless everybody wins and hours like that really to me like yes. We say that all the time yes. It's a thing but i think to have Y can in person interaction with somebody and be able to have that kind of experience in person was just so just like rewarding to me and it just made me feel even more grateful than i already dead and it was just a all around. No part of that trip was bad. All of it was awesome regardless of whether you know it was people that i was able to meet in person or people that were just super super kind.

"Emotional ness. Tell me why it was very similar to the you know the netflix original run the end. Okay so i can stay in i before. Cogan was involved in the may fourth task force so my knowledge on the the you know i guess i don't know general atmosphere of the country in During the vietnam era is you know. Pretty good i would say so. So having that kind of knowledge and stuff and being a bruce fan hearing the song in understanding the lyrics I think it was. It just made it even more powerful to hear at live in the version that he played it in because to me that was just like it almost and goes for a lot of the show. It kind of takes you out of time so you every single song honestly put me in a different honestly kinda different world so that one was particularly powerful just because i you know. Obviously it's a super emotional thing and you know. I remember watching it on netflix extending. Ob emotional then but to hear it live is just a whole nother experience and kind of in the same you know with holding onto that same theme i guess when he played forty one shots and then the rising yes so i did not expect him to play super super powerful. Obviously just because of the you know the content of songs but also just you know with with the state of the country in you. Know the fact that it's ironic. We were actually just talking about that specific case in one of my classes tonight but and of course i brought up bruce but But the fact that that was you know what twenty one twenty two years ago and it's like you could pretty much write that song in it would pretty much be relevant for any time period is just you know it just adds that extra layer of emotion to it. So that was really really. Just i don't know. I don't want to call it a highway but definitely another powerful moment within the show and then obviously the rising as well and i kind of at the time didn't comprehend like how close it was when i saw the show to september. Eleven and i was only one when september eleventh happened. I really don't have the only you know. Knowledge that i have is whatever i hear from other people are read or see or whatever or so so i think that to me that was that was really powerful because it almost made it real to somebody. That was not old enough to really comprehend it right. I mean and of course in typical bursts fashion. He just makes it sort of like. I said just that out of like out of time out of world kind of experienced. Yeah yeah that makes a lotta sense. Do anything disappoint you. And i know that's a dumb thing to ask but no no it's knocked on. I get it well honestly not yet. No i mean like. I said it anything that i could have expected. I walked in.

"Damn you know I assume that they did similar to mine. Is please turn off your cell phones you know on and on and all of a sudden you know very is oh my goodness so talk about it. Oh my god okay. So i literally i cried before he even got on stage at all. I just couldn't believe the whole. No combination of you know the fact that i was even able to be there in just the energy the environment the anticipation just all of it But once he walked onstage. And i like there truly is nothing in this world like hearing him lives like i just instantly knew that like he honestly didn't even have to like sing anything yet. Just walk out. And i knew i was never. It was not going to be like anything else in this world so obviously very excited. But having i think for me at this you know seeing the show at the time that i did being the age that i am. I think that the introduction of growing up was really really struck. Me even more than i think you know. I think obviously in general. It's just gonna like have an impact on people like. Oh what a great introduction to the show and is but it really really resonated with me so that just made it all the more special for that. First little you know introduction absolutely yes did So i i know it's hard to get through. So do you have moments that stand out songs that especially were meaningful to you. Talk about some of the highlights. Yeah okay so. I'm glad i wrote them down because i really would have been like. Oh my gosh it was so neither. I don't remember i'm like i mentioned growing up. Okay i knew going in that. I said okay. If he keeps my father's house in the show. I'm going to like lose it what i know. I'm going to So i did. But i was still able to you know. Keep my composure. A little bit but that was just to me. I don't know. I won't go too deep into it. But the storytelling aspect of the show general specifically with that song really really really clicked with me and i. It was almost like another. Validating experience. Like i talked about earlier with the whole depression thing that to me was just like hearing somebody that i like. Love in admire in just in just constantly in awe of talk about things that i can personally relate to was to hear it live. no last was just. I seriously don't even know how to describe it like that was definitely a highlight for me in a super emotional but super validating wine And then another one was so my hometown when he played that again. I was like okay just like the other show and i honestly yeah. A lot of it was the same which i lost her sherm. Yeah but my hometown in particular was special to me. Because that is one of the songs that i have the clearest memory of hearing in terms of like my one of my first times hearing bruce when i was a child like bright lights three years old like in our old house in cleveland likes sitting on the porch with music flaring where it's always summertime like i does..

But i had laura on the podcast and she went up to in. She tells the story that because of a delay she ended up not making the show right and so she was crushed and so they ended up getting other tickets and they went back a second time and she said even sitting in her seat in the theater. She's like okay. Something's going to happen like this is. I'm still not going to be able to see bruce. Because you know this the universe is going to be fighting against me now Who did you take okay. So interesting question. Because when i got my ticket i was so like. Oh my god. I just need any ticket right so i taught myself and i kind of had this like not real clear plan of what i was going to do but i said you know why i was like my sister is like my best friend my ride or die on taken her to new york with me. Don't know that she would want to see bruce. So i only purchased the one ticket. But she did go with me to new york. I made Springsteen on broadway sort of my little solo mission but then of course you know a whole little family came together. And i had some friends that were like oh going this day to or you know whatever working it out like that so it was like i'm knew that even though i was going alone i wouldn't be alone. You know what. I need so well. Yeah and i've been very honest that When i went During the first run Meeting bella portray. Who's been on the podcast. Multiple times was almost as exciting to me as seeing bruce. Because you know just we had known each other you know through the podcast then to meet in person and she is just as charming and lovely in person and we clicked right away. There was no this awkwardness. It was just too old friends seeing each other even though we had never met before right so.

But let's be honest in the theater world broadway. Is the gold standard right. It's the place that commands the most money. The most attention and six is barreling toward what the producers hope is going to be a long and lucrative ron. Here they get a theatre. It's called the brooks atkinson theatre. It's on west forty seventh street in the heart of times square and as fate would have it. They schedule an opening night for march twelfth of twenty twenty. Can you walk me through your day. March twelve twenty i. It's it's yes. I can walk you through that day. This week i went with some of the producers from your show to talk to the cast and crew about what that day and then that night were like the day started where. I took my change of clothes to work. We talked to the american producer. Kevin mccollum who's broadway veteran he co-produced rent and avenue. Q in the heights through. But i knew there was a lot to do that day and i had all the gifts waiting for everybody at the office that i was going to distribute at the theater and and he told us he was getting ready for a big night. Of course he was going to give gifts to the cast and crew. I had a lot of people from london here. And i had also people here from l. a. We're working on. He knew that all these pupil had come in from out of town to celebrate the opening night of this show and we had one hundred seventy thousand dollars of sushi. Tau waiting first downtown. Thomas sushi. And i'm sure some six themes swag which would be like purple and a lot of crowns. It's a magical time to look each other in the eye and say this is what we made together at this time and there will never be another time like this in our lives and it's beautiful. It's really beautiful so everything was very much in motion. This is going to be a traditional big opening night. Absolutely but i gotta take you back to that period in march of twenty twenty there. Is this pandemic. that is sort of closing in. It has reached america. It is present in new york. Someone had gotten ill in another show for a matinee. The day before moulin rouge and other musical had cancelled. Its matinee that very day because we're were infections in the cast and i also heard one of our line shire's had been diagnosed as positive even though when they were not in the theater at haiti's town they banned actors from greeting fans for autographs at the stage door. It was a trickle that then turn into a waterfall of. We're going to have to do something. There was a sense that the walls were sort of closing in. I got a call at around. Eleven o'clock From the league saying you need to come into the league. We got some information. So i'm and then. Kevin gets called this emergency meeting. It's at the broadway league which is a trade association of theatre owners and producers so i got there and everybody who had a show running sitting around this table that holds like forty people there like sixty people and they say the governor is going to have a moratorium on performing. And he's gonna close broadway at seven pm. And i raised my hand and i said excuse me i have an opening at six thirty and 'paparazzi coming at five and right now it's twelve. We have the governor and we have to say he has to be five or earlier or closet. Now good afternoon so got press conference. I think it was about two thirty three o'clock. i think. Theaters in manhattan. Where it will go into effect. Five o'clock today. I was watching it and he did say we're closing broadway at five. Pm we've already been talking to the broadway theaters and they are aware that we're going to be doing this So they have noticed these room.
