How exciting! I've always wondered what happened to Randy Adams after he moved to NYC -- and now his shows have won Tony Awards, wow!

I remember seeing Memphis when it had is world premier in Mountain View. It was a powerful and enjoyable show -- as many Theatreworks shows have been and continue to be.

I wish Randy and his partners at Junkyard Dog Productions continued success -- he richly deserves it.
