Once again Ian Sullivan captivated audiences as Tevya ... he was growing into the part for sure.
Jo Chase was a fabulous Dolly, the production one of the highlights of the season.
LADIES NIGHT.. delighted audiences as always; the more ridiculous the antics, the better they like it.
Locals this season included Lillian Walker (from Hampton Fails), Agnes Herrman, Eric Weitz, and of course Sarah Christie and Olga Morosoff.
Nancy Reardon remembers...
"In LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS, the first play of the '72 season -- in June -- every time I turned around this handsome apprentice was there to help me -- it was Tom Flynn. I was making a huge patchwork quilt backstage and I taught him to quilt. We got married in June'73 and have a beautiful 16 year old daughter Katie. We remember Al's mother's delicious checkerboard cake -- which she made for my birthday, and all special occasions. And my 90 year old landlady Mrs. Banum who was deaf. She called Tom's motorbike his charriot! Her deafness I'm sure made her so generous toward his leaving her house at 3AM -- the loud sound of his bike would have awakened the dead -- but not Mrs. Banum. Tom loved doing the bottle dance in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF -- he can still do it without the bottlel. Tom is now writer producer for the CBS evening news. Tom also played in 40 CARATS with me as the young golf teacher."
