Washington, D.C. is a fabled and wonderful place for this student of history, architecture, and politics.
And the view of the United States Capitol gets me every time.
From Wednesday, on Capitol Hill:
Thanks to the kindness of the mother of a prospective student, I had a private guided tour on Wednesday of the FBI Experience.
The best parts? J. Edgar Hoover’s desk. And the live firing range where nine agents were shooting their quarterly qualification. And the company of a lively FBI employee. And the spy-craft stuff.
I’ll have more to post on Friday, but this 8.30 p.m. arrival at home after a full day in D.C. has me tired and not feeling like writing.
July 1986. I was 25 years old.
The show was Where’s Charley? by Frank Loesser. I was playing Sir Frances Chesney, with Erica Gulick as my opposite number.
A rehearsal shot:
The production was directed by a local school teacher. My student Terry Murphy was Charley. I was also music director. The producer was Kansas City Parks and Recreation. And that’s about all I remember.
