So every now and then I get a call, or email, to program a special event. Whether it’s cabaret or comedy, it’s always a lot of work but in the end it’s always worth it. In April, I was asked to program a cabaret for the LGBT identified athletes of the Pan Am Games and I instantly said yes. Last night we arrived in the athletes lounge (the cottage) with our sheet music in hand and I’m incredibly grateful to my friends for bringing their best to the stage. It was amazing to see the backstage of the Pan Am Games, to walk around the village, and to meet awesome hot athletes (Yes, you! Caylor Williams, Team USA!). Special thanks to Shawn Daudlin, Brendan Healy, and Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (www.buddiesinbadtimes.com) for providing us with an amazing rehearsal space! – SH
