2:20AM also picked up Most Outstanding: Production, Director (MelissaMcMillan), Small Ensemble, Lighting Design (Remi D'Agostin and Program Design.

Random musings and mutterings
I was always a late developer in everything. I didn’t start singing until I was in my late 20s. Songwriting came much later. When I was a kid, it was always the guitar. The damn thing was all consuming and it never came easily. When songs manifested themselves out of the ether, it was like discovering the right end of the telescope for the first time. Suddenly the purpose of the instrument became clear. Everything made sense. My horizons had broadened as my focus sharpened. The universe had been telling me all the while the guitar was supposed to be the means, not the end, I just wasn’t listening.
