Reid Shelton

found this obit at the NYTimes, many of you may have seen it before but I thought I'd post it for those who haven't. He was a very talented guy, I know a lot of talented men have played Oliver Warbucks over the years but I always think of Reid when I think of the character. I thought it was interesting how he was able to purchase the entire Hell's Kitchen building he lived in after 3 years of playing Warbucks (didn't think theater paid that much, lol)

(I still can't find that darned OBC recording that isn't the (supposedly, according to several amazon reviews) poorly remastered 98 version, grrrrr...)

: )
