And read the interview that Deadline did with Jenn Colella:
Deadline: What was that first meeting with her like?
Colella: We met in La Jolla after the last preview. We just embraced and it felt like I was meeting long-lost sister. She and Tom, her husband, hadn’t seen the show yet. They had no idea what they were about to see. And the next night was the opening and she was in the second row, blonde hair, this radiant smile, and I thought This is meta, I’m singing to her, tears are streaming down her face, she’s grabbing Tom’s hand as I’m singing, “I’m fine, Tom, I’m fine.” It was this extraordinary experience in pure love, and art reflecting life, and focus – all of these things at once. They’re a part of the family. We text constantly. She’s given me her original captain’s jacket and many of the service pins she’s garnered through the years.
