It was the last performance of Sunday in the Park at the Booth Theatre and we went downstairs, there was a little bar there, and we had a drink.Stephen said to me at the bar, “Was this a good experience for you?” referring to the whole thing.
I said, “Yeah, really great. How ‘bout you?”
"Well for me," he said, "it’s just like all the others."
"Really? It was just like all the others for you?”
I was sort of stunned. Ten years later we did a charity concert for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and there we were again in a little drinking bar after that show.
And I said, “Steve, do you remember the conversation we had ten years ago at the Booth Theatre when you said for you it was like all the others, it was just the same? Do you remember that?”
"Well, do you know now how full of shit you were?"
And he laughed and he said, “Yes, I do.”

This is also currently being directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the duo who directed The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules and The Princess an the Frog! So there’s that
Let’s guess what adjective they’re gonna replace the title with.

I don’t even care, the “SPOOKYTUS” in Spooky Mormon Hell Dream makes me laugh like a fool every time.
