It would seem as if there are a half dozen people on stage instead of just one

Very recently I had the honor and pleasure to meet and work with Rich Swingle. He is without a doubt one of the most talented, creative people I know. He knew I had some personal connections to 9/11 so he shared his performance of “5 Bells For 9/11 NYC” with me. From the moment Rich walks on stage, as one of several different characters he plays, one no longer sees an actor named Rich, but the individual characters he is playing. The moves, the accents, the reactions are so unique and special it would seem as if there are a half dozen people on stage instead of just one. Rich Swingle has a way of taking a very serious subject and interjecting humor in such a way that is not only funny but respectful of the subject matter. It was a wonderful, emotional rollercoaster ride through a day that for our generation, as Franklin Roosevelt said on December 7, 1941, "A day that will live in Infamy. Regardless of ones connection to 9/11 I highly recommend this amazing performance by an incredible talent. Thank you Rich for touching my heart.
