My love of Broadway musicals is no secret. I wear my adoration of the art form proudly, as a badge, upfront and center.

The Broadway cast recording of New York City Center Encores’ production of James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods has been released on streaming and digital platforms worldwide. The critically acclaimed show has been cheered by the theatre press and audiences alike for many reasons—primarily because it’s brilliant.

Here’s a peek at the recording session. It makes me smile. Broadly.

I was in my early twenties when I discovered—living in the City and seeing lots of Broadway shows—that when you’re in the audience of a musical you’re surrounded by kindred spirits. You’re surrounded by friends—and you’re not alone.

Into the WoodsNo One is Alone

Things will come out right now
We can make it so
Someone is on your side
No one is alone

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
