We played Zurich, Berlin, Vienna, Paris and Milan, and living and working in those cities, not to mention traveling to neighboring cities on days off, was a time in my life I will always treasure. I then did the North American tour which was another awesome experience and enabled me to get my Equity card and record my first cast album. The friends I made on both those tours have enriched my life beyond measure.
