Chin up

Jason's memorial/roast tonight. Believe me, it was equally both a memorial and roast. I have never heard so many mean and funny burns at the same time. A little at Jason's expense, a lot at Brett's expense and then everyone else was fair game. It was great to see this community come together (despite the obvious) and to see so many friends and acquaintances and to hug so many people tightly and it felt great to laugh and to cry and to make fun of Jason's nerdiness and also embrace it. BUT it was great to hear people say things we've all been thinking. It was like a venting session for some people. I think it's good to continue Jason's legacy of welcoming everyone into the theater. It may be a new space but it's still a home for a lot of people so we have to make sure it stays that way. Farewell, Dr. Chin. It was a pleasure knowing you.
