2021 marks my 20th anniversary as a columnist for Seattle-area theatre. When I happily accepted the gracious invitation from the 5th Avenue Theatre to come on over, I had no idea my life would be changed in ways I never anticipated. The invitation turned out to be far more than attending countless plays and musicals.

The Seattle theatre community opened their arms and their hearts to me. By 2008, I received another invitation to attend Village Theatre in Issaquah (with occasional visits to Seattle’s ACT Theatre and other venues). My experiences helped me to overcome my shyness, and I established many cherished friendships.
