Love at second sight?

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  October 13, 2009

Her husband doesn't disagree. "When you meet someone that you've known intimately, lived with and shared, especially in your youth, which is kind of an idealistic time, I don't know -- to scratch that is a little scary."

She gives an example. "We were just at a party, and I was telling the story of the play to this guy who I didn't know very much. And all of a sudden he started spilling his guts a little bit -- like [Elena in the play] talks about strangers spilling their guts to each other -- and he was like, 'Yeah, you think about how your life could have gone?' Then his wife comes into the picture. 'Not that I would want to change it at all.' " We all laugh.

Sullivan sums it up. "You laugh, you cry, you kiss some bucks goodbye. And you keep it with you in your heart. That's what theater is all about."
