"A Fabled Run" - 20,000 Performances Tonight!
September 15, 2013

Tom Jones in an excerpt from The New York Daily News, Sept 15. 2013: "I was in the original cast in 1960 and I returned to play the same role on the 50th anniversary," he says. "As I crawled out of the old theatrical trunk to make my entrance, I was suddenly struck by the realization that everything was the same. The world around us had undergone vast changes," Jones continues. "So many of my friends and fellow actors had passed away. But this tale we were telling, this parable about growing up, was still able to touch people, to make them laugh and weep, after all these years. And I was very moved by that."
