I was lucky enough to attend a showing
on December 5, 1998 along with my ex-wife Lynn. And Roger really did kick some ass
up on that stage.


My ticket stub to see Roger Daltrey as Scrooge Dec 5, 1998 at MSG


It was a bit weird at first not seeing him
stepping in place or twirling the mic around
by it's cord as I've seen him do many many times on stage with The Who.


But once you got over the fact that this was not... a WHO show... then everything fell right into place and suddenly... it was just as exciting
as being at a WHO show!


Here are some pix we took toward the end
of the performance and then as the cast
took their final bows on stage
followed by a small collage I made
to remember an awesome night.


It was really pretty neat to be there!
