this is joe...
...joe is smooth.
joe runs the backstage door at the attucks theatre...
you don't get in, unless joe says so.
most people don't even give him a second glance, the first is only out of necessity to get in the door.
funny thing is, joe has a wealth of historical knowledge about the theater and the surrounding neighborhood that no book or documentary could convey. joe grew up here.
i talked to joe
i added him to our backstage catering list for lunch and dinner because, that's what you do
he gave me more, good stories about this city than anyone else i've met here
i gave joe lunch, and the respect he deserves
and he gave me his memories that i would have never have otherwise known
small price to pay
