We lost a dreamer.

On the last day of September, we lost a real Broadway gentleman.

Mr. Sonny Everett, one of the Producers of Avenue Q, Drowsy Chaperone, In the Heights and a whole bunch more, passed away, way too prematurely.

As you can read here, Sonny always dreamed of being a Broadway Producer, and he never gave up on it.  It took him awhile to get his name on a marquee, but he did it . . . and then he did it again, and again, demonstrating that it’s never too late to go after what you love.

I first met Sonny when he cold called me a couple of years ago.  “I’ve heard you like to do things a little differently,” he said.  “I’d like to meet you.”

And we met.  And in two minutes I realized that I was talking to one of the classiest guys around.

We’ll miss you, Sonny.
