That just hit me like a ton of bricks. He was the crème de la crème of everything he attempted in life. I was privileged to spend time talking to him many times over the years and I never left the conversation without far more insight than when I arrived. At the same time, he was also a person who learned from others (although not always without pushback :-) ).
I also just smiled thinking about a couple of things involving Michael that have nothing to do with the theatre.
