  • Day 20: Thank you, thank you, Kathleen Jones!

    I have been reading the title of this blog post a bit like a cheer with a rah-rah ahead of it.  Why?  Because Kathleen and Orion Jones donated to my birthday fundraiser for Zara Aina!  This has been the season of Kathleen for my theatre life.  She and I have known each other since college, […]
