  2. Living just a few minutes away, I was there in spirit AND in person. Quite a Gala with some real giants in the business and wonderful to see John Lloyd Young meeting and greeting so many in attendance. As always, greeting fans with the same respect he shows to industry icons. A second Tony winner from Jersey Boys was there, in fact. Lighting master, Howell Binkley also came out to support George Street Playhouse’s annual fundraiser.

    With so many big names taking the stage Sunday night, John Lloyd sang just one song- the ever beautiful, always timeless CTMEOY and it left me wishing the other amazing performers could perhaps… relinquish their time for our distinguished ‘Senator’ from New Jersey.
