  1. Hal Prince use to come into The Coconut Grove Playhouse when I worked there in the 1990s. On one occasion he even sat with me and talked about a career in directing. His best advise was to make things happen for yourself and never sit around waiting for someone to hand you a job. That was the first time I started to believe that I could open my own theatre.
