As you may have figured out by now, that show was "Save it for the Stage: The Life of Reilly", starring the one and only Charles Nelson Reilly.
The theatre itself was small -- 130 seats with nary a bad seat in the house. And there, on stage, so very close to where we were, was one of my childhood icons. The man himself, talking about the trials and tribulations of his life. His family. The fire. His acting school. His toupee. His ... life. Never once were the words "Match Game" even said, and never more could I have been more interested. The man had one heck of a life, and it was no where near over yet. At the end of the day, Jen said it was one of the best performances she had seen, because it was all so real.
And today, that life has come to it's fateful end after 76 years. And while he has not been in the spotlight for some time, he willl be greatly missed for some time.
