  2. Many congrats Bobby.

    My sister has been friends with Michael since they went to high school together in the late 70′s. He is fantastic. JB’s and Nick won’t be the same with out you. Hope the show comes to NYC so we can see it.

  5. Congratulations Bobby! I saw the show off broadway and I think you are perfect for the part. I can’t imagine JB without you, but I’ll keep hoping to see you in another show in NYC.
