play musical, and after the standing ovation, Larry Yando, charming man (divine, really) who played Pangloss among others, encouraged the audience to make a gift to Broadway Cares in such an articulate and graceful fashion, you just wanted to give. As I was leaving, there was Cunegonde/Lauren in full costume holding a basket to collect donations. Initially surprised to see such a tiny person (that great, big voice!) I managed to muster up the words to compliment her talent, and convey how much we loved the performance. She beamed a beautiful smile, warmly thanked me and wished me a Merry Christmas. Sweet!
