Watching my son on stage this time was very surreal. It was wonderful but didn't seem like it was him! I was watching a grown man this time. A preacher man who was married with a troubled teenager. He was struggling with his own grief and for once in his life didn't know what to do about a tough situation in his life, until he cried, "HEAVEN HELP ME." It was a beautiful song.
It was a wonderful message for anyone who might be struggling making decisions. Footloose is a show not only about teenagers but also about parents. I hope my son got some insights as he played this role!
