"Zero Hour" A Sell-Out Success.

Last night's performance of "Zero Hour" was nothing less than electrifying according to all the people I spoke with in the lobby afterwards. It was fun being there before the show -- so many people coming up and saying how much they enjoyed "Big Voice" -- and then again at intermission and afterwards.

Ed Decker called this morning and said that the event sold $4000 in tickets, produced $4000 in additional donations from attendees, and then that total will be matched with a matching grant of $8000, bringing the total for the evening to $16,000 to help fund the New Conservatory's Educational and Production programs.

And Jim was brilliant.

I'll never, ever forget Jimmy's performance in "Zero". It's one of the truly magical moments I've had in the audience in a long, long time.

That's right. I said it.
