Houston Gets Some Hed, Part 5: Time Collapses and Space Warps
I was on a metaphorical ledge, about to jump with the whole Hedwig project in my arms. Jef was patiently trying to talk me off that ledge. For over an hour, he kindly debated with me that I couldn't just dump the show at this stage in the game. The show, he argued, was no longer just mine, but now belonged to all the folks who were working so hard to make it happen. Once again, my frustration at various problems was being vented in Jef's direction. Eventually, I cooled down, and Jef's more rational ideas started to seep into my thick skull. Very few people who were involved in the production knew how close it was to being scrapped. Jef is owed a huge thanks for preventing me from letting that happen.
