So very sad to read this, and yet so glad to see that the commitment to justice he had when he, Bobby Kaufman, Penny Mattern, Harvey Wallerstein and I shared those trips to New York theatres, our beliefs. our angst with the world , his delight in
double talk" with Bobby, and all that laugher only grew with time..

Neil, you're remembered with such warmth and gratitude.  Rest in Peace.  Lynne Rossett Kasper
