    I first saw Charles Ludlam and his Ridiculous Theatre as they were rehearsing in Jenny Greenberg’s loft in SoHo. I was blown away. At that point I was still wet behind the ears as a 26-year-old actor from the southern prairie only 2 years in New York. Jenny and Albert cast me in Platanov and that was the beginning of my so-called career.
    But Ludlam was doing something I had not thought of doing in Oklahoma.
