I work on Broadway because of you.

A few days before our industry lost Stephen Sondheim, we lost another giant . . . and someone who was even MORE influential on my career. How could that be?

Because Craig Jacobs gave me my first job, my second job, and 147,000 pieces of advice, referrals to other people, and so much more. I was his Production Assistant on My Fair Lady in 1993, went on to Stage Manage under his incredible tutelage.

He helped me get my first Company Management gig, before I had the experience to qualify for it.

Craig did for me what I and so many others who want and need when we’re coming up: He believed in me. And by doing that, he helped me believe in myself.

Thanks, Craig. I work on Broadway because of you.
