I've always said, if you can comfortably manage a Broadway musical, you can manage anything. But I never tested that but it all works the same way, my actors are the nurses here. The ones giving the shots are the stars of our show. That's who we're promoting. And the rest of us who are working here, who are all industry people, are the crew that supports the actors in doing the show. Instead of doing an inventory of tickets, I'm doing an inventory of vaccines.
We had a horrible tragedy last night at 26th and Broadway, we lost a wonderful citizen named David McAtee.
