Earlier this year, Jen came to me and asked if I wanted to direct The Comedy of Errors. My eyes rolled back in my head, that internal deer dropped dead from shock, and I heard my mouth say "yes, of course!" So here I am, chewing again. What else could I say? Who wouldn't leap at the chance to catch that same lightning in a bottle?
