Taylor Hicks had his final curtain call last night on Broadway. I am feeling like it's a mixture of nostalgia, relief, and bit of sadness for him, the cast, and his fans. Taylor was really terrific last night, according to all reports, and the cast even attempted to lift him in homage to the many audiences he has thrilled and increased, since his addition to the ensemble cast.
TaylorsAngels has a wonderful interview with Kirsten Wyatt, who plays Frenchie to Taylor Hicks' Teen Ange, which is testament to how much he was loved by the cast and crew. I am quite sure New York, Broadway, the fans, and "Grease" will be missing their resident Soul Angel for many weeks and months to come.
Their loss may be our gain, as Taylor Hicks continues to develop his craft and talent for his one true passion, his music. We will be seeing him down the road onstage and off, doing what he does best...ENTERTAIN AND PLEASE!
ROCK ON, SOUL ANGEL!
