BROADWAY BARTENDING DAYS AT "FOSSE" AND "CATS" AND MEETING DONNA SUMMER

Moi and Ben Vereen at a Spa Party he gave us!
It was while bartending at The Broadhurst Theatre at "Fosse" that I met Donna Summer.  During the 1970's everyone used to tell me that I looked like the great Disco Queen.  In 2001 Donna came to see Ben Vereen (they both appeared in the film "Hair") perform in the production and decided to stop by the bar to chat with me.  I guess she thought I resembled her too.  She had the most powerful voice, which I witnessed at an outdoor concert at Boston Harbor.  She almost blew us out of our seats many rows away.  RIP


Before working at The Broadhurst I worked at the Winter Garden and closed, at the time, the longest running show on Broadway "Cats"!  That's a pic of me and the "Cats" bartender crew...
