This is me with the late Tony-winning Broadway actress Liliane Montevecchi circa 1996 on the set of Hello Dolly at the Royal Opera of Wallonia, where I trained for a decade. She played Dolly, of course, and I was some New York kid dancing in the background. She would always ask about my dreams and shout to whoever wanted to hear that she didn’t drink water: ‘only champagne and mimosas, darling.’
