I've previously written about my involvement in some musicals. The inspiration to write about this I got from my favorite blogger Bart Boehlert with his blog Bart Boehlert’s Beautiful Things. He described a visit to the musical A Little Night Music at Brodway. When I read this post, I took courage and wrote an email to Bart because I earlier wrote a comment on his blog. I wanted to explain to him that I don’t have English as my native language so I asked him to be lenient if I spell wrong or use the wrong word. In this letter I also wrote about my little experience with musicals. I waited tensely. But I got an answer and it also contained a big surprise. It turned out that Bart was familiar with the writer of the musical Annie, Tom Meehan!
I picked up the program again and when I looked properly I saw his name. But on the theater program that I saved was the name Th. Meehan on the front. When I googled for Tom Meehan, I realized that Th meant Thomas. I also read that he wrote The Producers and Hairspray. Isn’t that fantastic!
