“He’s basically a poet. He gets certain colors out of this orchestra, and the sound immediately changes. It’s like working in black and white, then all of a sudden having millions of colors available.” – Glenn Dicterow on Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos

Kudos to our Broadway buddies who brought home gold at last night’s ‪#‎tonyawards‬. Kudos to Neil Patrick Harris (who was in our 2000 Sweeney Todd and 2011 Company), Jessie Mueller (Carousel, 2013), and Audra McDonald (Sweeney 2000 & 2014, the latter being aired on PBS Sept. 26). We are proud to call you friends! (Photos by Chris Lee)
