Here is a comment sent to my e-mail address from my neighbor Frank that I wanted to share:

I was out with a tour of "The Student Prince" (as a show tech - which meant I drove the truck from tent to tent) and we were playing outside of Atlantic City. The moonwalk brought torrential rains and the theatre was flooded. This was before Atlantic City had gambling, but there were rooming houses where the costume ladies and I were put up. I remember drinking vodka on the rocks and eating sconjilli (sic) squid. The night that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, our star, manufactured Irish tenor John Gary (no one remembers him) came onstage and said "There's a better show on TV. Exchange your tickets at the box office." I had turned down doing a tour of Edie Adams in "Mame" because I thought I'd have to rig her moon from the center of the tent -- not true, her moon came down an aisle. In the "Mame" company, they played that night and Ms. Adams' moon came down the aisle with American flag planted on top! That same summer, Janis Page was also touring in "Mame", and if you catch me at the right time, I'll do my imitation of her rehearsing the show in Cleveland, where the show would open after "Student Prince" closed.


It's a tragic event not only for the Kennedy's but also for the people. Some say that there is a conspiracy behind it while others say it was a curse on the family. We will never really know.
