Recap: Out of Darkness: Walk to Prevent Suicide


This past Sunday (October 24), I participated in "Out of Darkness: The Walk To Prevent Suicide," walking with "The Beaten Path" team. Along with 800 other walkers, we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Manhattan. Our team raised over $1900 and the walk itself raised over $125,000 with no corporate sponsorships. All of that money was raised by the participants!

It was truly a day of coming together and getting the word out about how suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Fellow "Adaumbelle's Quest" participant

Bobby Cronin performed two songs ("Daybreak" sung by the amazing Ray Lee and "The Best Is Yet To Come" sung by the equally amazing and upcoming participant Jenn Furman). Both songs of hope were the perfect fit and both Ray and Jenn really hit the mark!

Backstage at "Memphis"

On Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010, I had the unique opportunity to go backstage after seeing the matinee performance of "Memphis." (Click for my review and re-review). I was invited by fellow "Adaumbelle's Quest" participant Derrick Baskin, who is one of the principal actors in the show, playing the role of "Gator." My family and I felt privileged to walk onto a real Broadway stage and see the theatre from a different perspective. Although Derrick must have been tired and he still had another show to perform, with great enthusiasm, he showed us the magic of how the set works. That greatly added to the enjoyment of the magnificent show I had just seen. The set designers should really be applauded for their remarkable work. While it seems effortless from the audience's perspective, we got a glimpse of the hard work and detailed coordination that goes into bringing the set to life at each performance.

Derrick also introduced us to two of the other principle cast members, Montego Glover who plays "Felicia" and James Monroe Iglehart who plays "Bobby." They were very gracious and warm when speaking to us. In addition to these cast members, I also had the opportunity to speak to two of the producers of the show, Chase Mishkin and Randy Adams...What a treat to meet two of the masterminds behind this show. As we were leaving the stagedoor, we also spoke to another principal cast member, fellow "Adaumbelle's Quest" participant Chad Kimball, who plays "Huey." It was great to catch up with him and I appreciated the time he took to talk with me. It's apparent by the enthusiasm of the cast that they are enjoying the show. So treat yourself and someone you enjoy and go see "Memphis!"

THANK YOU Derrick and the rest of the cast for a wonderful and unique experience! See you soon...
