Years ago, he enjoyed the humble confines of a green room in the bowels of the theater building at St. Olaf College. It was a space claimed, for a brief time, by its denizens – an ever-changing cast of characters coming and going throughout the day, the weeks, the shows, the years. Within it, all strove for connection – be it in the real world or in the world of theater – that confirmed our humanness.
