Honk! – Grant Coward

During a 2016 matinee performance of The Secret Garden at the Capitol Theatre, Ricardo Canlas Jr. and I were waiting for our cues. We decided to go to the backstage door, open it up for a breath of fresh air and take in the lovely sunshine for a brief moment. 

As we were enjoying the beautiful day a train happened to come along letting out an extremely loud and sustained HONK!!!!!!! which I’m sure could be heard in the main theatre.  We quickly closed the door and laughed so hard. 

Now whenever we meet, we look at each other, make the train noise and laugh uproariously. It was a moment we will never forget.  Very funny!
