Well, last night was the opening night of TPAC’s latest Broadway installment: Dreamgirls. It was knock-your-socks-off amazing! The classic show about love, music and following your dreams still holds up even after 25 years. We laughed, we cried, we left singing and wondering if we’d really followed our own dreams all these years. We even had a great pre-show dinner at Koto Sushi restaurant and sitting at our neighboring table were two fabulous and handsome young men who are in the cast! What fun! I interviewed Chester Gregory who plays James “Thunder” Early, the role made famous on film by Eddie Murphy. Chester is a fun and talented man and I had a blast talking theater with him. Enjoy the interview, but more important, GO SEE THIS SHOW!!!!! You won’t be sorry. It’s only in town until October 31st, so hurry, hurry, hurry. Here’s Chester! Chester Gregory
So, in our family, college admission is first and foremost. Our youngest is in application/senior mode. He follows his two older sibs who will both be graduating from undergrad this coming Spring, so we’ve been down this road before. And paying for this higher-ed extravaganza is first and foremost on our minds too! To borrow, or not to borrow, that is THE question. I interviewed a great young guy, Zac Bissonnette, himself a senior at UMass, who wrote a book about how to stay debt-free while in college. It’s called “Debt Free U: How I Got a Great College Education Without Going Into Debt or Mooching Off My Parents”. Take a listen, it’s great food for thought (no pun intended). Zac Bissonnette
