He walks us through the big golden doors, past the gentle ticket taker, and ushers us down to our seats in the "fourth-row center," near the First Nighter Orchestra. In a few short moments, the curtains will go up, and we will be witnessing Broadway, at its fullest. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the "little theater off time square" sponsored by Campana's.
