Sunday, October 16, 2011. The Candide cast, orchestra and crew had given a stellar closing performance. They had taken their bows, the house lights were on, the actors had gone down to their dressing rooms, and I had turned off the camera, having recorded the show for our archives. But the audience wasn't done. They continued to stand, they continued to applaud, they continued to holler, they wanted more! I turned the camera back on - see for yourself - it was an amazing thing!
Candide - featuring Larry Yando, Geoff Packard, Lauren Molina, Erik Lochtefeld, McCaela Donovan, Travis Turner, Emma Rosenthal, Joey Stone, Alexander Elisa, Evan Harrington, Abby Mueller, Jeff Parker, Cheryl Stern, Jesse J.

Addendum (10/22/11): Many people have asked to see the closing night finale of Candide and the curtain call that took place before the above video was taken. Click to view an excerpt of "Make our Garden Grow". Enjoy!
