unlikely homecoming

Our new house in Cleveland Heights, about half way in between Cedar Lee & Coventry.


Spirited Fall hiking at nearby Chagrin Falls, with lots of muddy paws.

Brad and the Boys along the trail at Chagrin Falls.

The Cedar Lee Marquee, my favorite place in town.

Halloween 2014

Well we've packed up the circus and moved back to Ohio!  My partner Brad is going to med school in the area and I came along for the ride.  We've been away for a few years, but something about this place feels like coming home– always surprising for this native Floridan.  We have a history in Cleveland, we both started out here after school, met in '03 (had coffee at Stone Oven on our first date), and welcomed the crazy dogs into our lives a few years later.  Thankfully, very little has changed in the neighborhood and I suspect you'll be hearing more about it in future posts. In the meantime, it's been a fun couple of months catching up with friends and visiting the old favorite spots.  Hope your Fall is a colorful one too.

You Can't Take It With You (odds & ends)








The show officially opened this week and it's all ready making fireworks on Broadway! These Sycamore family possessions were created to assist with television and web marketing and seem like a good indication of a pretty fun and wild show!

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon introducing Rose Byrne.

Jimmy and Rose Byrne talking about the production.

You Can't Take It With You Playbill

The coolest thing to happen in a long time.

I just about fell out of my bed tonight when Jimmy Fallon held up the You Can't Take It With You Playbill!  As kids, I can still remember sneaking out to watch the Tonight Show with my sister Sarah and my cousin Josh. Never in a million years would that little 6-year-old me expect to see his illustrations grace the Tonight Show desk. This business isn't always easy and these moments don't happen very often, but I'm almost tearful tonight, feeling so lucky and thankful.

My poster is up on it's Broadway Marquee and the line is stretched around the block for the show's first preview!  Wishing I could be there. BIG thanks to Pat & Piper at Lindgren & Smith for this one!

ALS ice bucket challenge


My ALS Ice bucket challenge video in memory of my Mom, Connie Christoph.

Please join me in making a donation to the ALS Association at www.alsa.org

More importantly, please call your member of congress and ask that they vote to restore critical research funding to the National Institutes of Health. It's our only hope for a cure.

Mercury Summer Stock 2014 - The Wedding Singer

Wedding Singer postcards spotted on Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights.

Had the pleasure last night of catching Mercury Summer Stock's last show of the season, The Wedding Singer. The refreshing and wildly talented cast and crew had us howling and nearly in tears.  Can't wait for next year and our future collaborations. Outstanding guys! Bravo!
