I grew up in Yonkers, which isn’t rural. It’s half urban and half suburban, and I grew up on the suburban side of town. I remember when the first black family moved into my neighborhood and what a ruckus it caused. I didn’t go to school with a single black student until I went to Junior High in the Bronx. And it wasn’t in the rural south, but a city in New York State on the border of New York City.

When I think of Kaz, “philosophical” is always the first adjective that pops into my head.
Hollywood is completely out of ideas. I assumed you knew.
The guy I saw playing Sebastian on Broadway was terrific. And the kid who played Flounder had a phenomenal singing voice for a child.
