ACFEA's US Tour Managers are rounding out a 2-day meeting in the Philadelphia office. It's been a great opportunity to brainstorm, strategize, troubleshoot and dream together.
There is some debate about who said it first, but when the words “Middle East” were uttered, the room fell silent, as we all took in what had just been said. One could almost hear the sound of a steam train engine starting to chug, creaking into a slow but steady rhythm. Soon, the conversation accelerated to a full-speed brainstorm. The Middle East would be exciting, if risky, for any group, but for this group, there were added challenges; for seated across from me at this table was the leadership of the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus.
