Ron. Congratulations. The evening was a great success. We all loved the show. Never mind the technical problems.  The dancing was, well, how could dancing be any better. You were amazing. You are loaded with talent. And the comedy numbers were fabulous. Ditto the costumes and music. The audience sing along and dancing in the aisles just added to the over all excellence of the night. Send my regards to the entire cast. A job more than well done. We had a  lot fun. Thank you. Edwin

Hi Ron, 

I sure hope you got a great night of sleep, and that you wake up to the sun shining and feeling great about what a great time everyone had last night... just because of all the you did and all that everyone did. It was an amazing experience, really, I'm not sure if I've ever been in a room full of so many people who all had such a great attitude. Everyone was happy it seems, no matter what the delays. What great energy to be in and be a part of. I'd thought that your doing the show. in and of itself, would be the inspiration for joy, but it was more than that, it was, as you said when you first came out and spoke, that we were coming together as a community. And that's what it felt like. Great fun, great energy, great entertainment. You did yourself real proud last night Ron Parker, everyone did... and I'm sure everyone is still smiling... I am. 
xo, Lori

I'm sure you must be receiving lots of compliments and I don't want to make you big-headed (!) but really, you brought such a wonderful energy to it, very real, no affectation or big ego.  That set the tone and made the evening truly great.  The technical snags really didn't matter, in fact made it even more special.

By word of mouths, people were most disappointed at the show not continuing on; they were really looking to forward to the rest of the show.  Even if the same music was replayed, they didn't care about that; they just wanted to see the rest of the dance concert. People know that we are not all professionals and they really enjoyed the show and they will remember it for a long time.  There were a few errors in the dances, but so what? The music stop playing, but so what?  Dancers don't stop, they just continue on; that is a sign of a professional dancer.  Even the most bona-fided dancers on award shows make errors. 
All in all, I heard nothing but praise at how everyone performed, how refreshing it was to see a dance concert such as ours and they said they are looking to the next one and hope that we will perform the rest of Act II.

Although there were myriad problems, unanswered questions, and bizarre issues last night at the event, as these types of events go, last night  (as I understand it), being your first RON, it was all okay. I think you deserve an A+ for all that you did and all that you accomplished. I really hope that you are very much encouraged to continue Producing and spreading the musical and dancing joy to the masses.

Chester, your genius goes without question (we all need to tighten up certain things, and we all know just what they are!).  Myself included!!
