And with a heavy heart, I say goodbye to this beautiful monster of a show. I will miss it. The Rage. The Love. The Catharsis. The Movement. The Cast. The Traveling. The Music. The Company. The Bus Rides. The Story. The Life. This has been a truly incredible experience and I will never forget a moment of it.
