"For those of you who don't know, Linda and I are making Manhattan, our home base. We have lived there on and off for the last 12 years. We're selling our Wilmington home, because, it's more then the two of us need, and we're selling the Red Barn, because Its run its course. We never planned to start a theatre. The moment came, and we seized it. We're just starting a new chapter in our story. We're not leaving Wilmington for good, we still have a lot invested in this community, and a little studio, in Castle Hayne when we're here. We'll just be up the road! We're just spreading out!"
