It's been an honour being part of this show, and phenomenal to work with this amazing cast and team. Plus - I get to sing this brilliant music night after night for the best fans in the world! "During the Dominion's first preview, we were met with a full standing ovation. As I walked onto the stage, I thought the roof of the theatre was going to blow off. As Steinman says 'I was lost, till you were found'. 'For Crying Out Loud', I love you all and I'll miss you dearly. I'm eternally grateful, thank you. Keep rocking and loving - I will always carry you in my heart."
