“I’m honored to receive the robe once again. I love the history and tradition of the robe and the ceremony. The ceremony is my favorite way to kick off opening night. You feel the excitement and energy from everyone associated with the show. We’ve worked tirelessly to make the show the best it can be and opening night is the reward.”
