They were presented soon after the musical romp I had produced there in 2015, Fabulous! The Queen of Musical Comedies, which closed after 150 performances. It is now in discussion for various road and other venue productions. It was very satisfying to go back to producing on the stage, after the many television shows and series I had been producing in the US and London.”

Naomi Lee Bloom CW’67 wrote in November, “Just a few months short of my 50th graduation anniversary, and an equal number of months short of my full-time professional career, I’ve put aside that career to focus on other things. Getting to this decision wasn’t easy, but considerable and growing mobility challenges influenced the timing of a career which had me traveling most every week until I began cutting back, a little at a time, about three years ago. My decision to retire (or let’s just call this a massive pivot!) has been a difficult one because I truly loved my work along with the social connections it has provided, to include many close friendships. But it’s less about going away from my career in technology and more about pivoting toward my family and friends, philanthropy, travel, boating, art collecting, theater, writing, painting, and many other personal interests. At the top of that list is spending more time with my husband of nearly 45 years, Ron Wallace. I won’t be at our 50th Reunion, but I’d love to hear from classmates via email at”

Daniel J. McCue C’92,, writes, “As my 25th Reunion approaches, I am getting constant reminders about the event, with all of them accompanied by pictures of happy and successful classmates talking about how wonderful their lives are and how much they enjoyed their years spent at Penn. I am happy for them and their good fortune, but lost amid all the social media glad-handing and ivy-colored memories is the fact that not all of us alumni are shiny, happy people living successful lives, and that not all of us look back fondly on our time at dear old Penn. Some of us did not make life-long friends during our college years, and some of us look back and remember nothing except feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, crushing anxiety, and isolation. Some of us, I’m sure, still struggle with problems of depression, or anxiety, or addiction, or self-worth. In my own life, my degree from Penn has closed more doors than it has opened; I am simply doing the best I can to just eke out a meager existence in my small world. But I want to let others out there like me in the Class of 1992, or any class for that matter, to know that they are not alone. I also want to wish my classmates continued health and happiness in their lives.”
