The first show we see? “Annie,” of course. For the next three months I can be found singing “Tomorrow” in the stairwell of our split-level suburban home. Several months later they take me to see the second show in the series, “La Cage Aux Folles.” Seriously. I spend the rest of the summer belting out “I Am What I Am” with a towel wrapped around my head like Tallulah Bankhead.
