Stage Door Notes:
Note: The cast has changed since I first saw it and went to the stage door.
Everyone was very nice, and every one came out to sign. Alex Sharp, the Tony-winner for his performance in the lead role in the original Broadway cast, was a superstar at the stage door, especially with the special needs fans for whom the show has particular meaning.
