Recorded conversation with Manny Azenberg today at the Neil Simon Theater, NYC. Manny has been Neil Simon’s producer since 1972. His productions have earned over 140 Tony nominations. Amazing!

On board as crew were two really superb cameramen, Chris Cassidy and Chris Kenneally. Kenneally, in fact, is one of the forces behind the documentary Crazy Legs Conti. John Bintz shot documentary footage of shoot and as always, proved an invaluable resource and good friend.
Manny Azenberg was a true delight, and extremely generous with his time. He spoke with such conviction, intelligence, and dry wit. His distinctive Bronx accent only added to the enjoyment of listening to what he had to say. I think his inclusion in the documentary will be a high point.
Many thanks to Wendy Revel for making the connection!
