So, many of you wrote to ask if I could do another interview with Eric all about his experience that night. I had imposed upon him to do three segments of "JKTS Chat," and I wasn't sure if I should impose again. Thankfully, he is a very generous, giving guy. I noticed (and I'm sure you did, too) that not only is he passionate about his profession, but he is a passionate fan of theatre just like us. Then I got to thinking, going on for a role is such a whirlwind of activity, thinking, and emotion, that trying to tell all about the whole experience might be more interesting as a narrative rather than trying to answer specific questions from someone who has never had a similar experience. Well, despite a very busy schedule - doing the show, getting through the whole holiday season and raising a family with two small children - Eric really, REALLY came through for us. What follows is his account of that fateful day when he played Neville Landless!
