Bruce was a great and talented guy. I still get chills remembering Bruce and Lucy Arinello singing “I’ve never been in love before.” Rest In Peace old friend. And condolences to your family.

So sad about Bruce.  I remember all the fun and excitement watching him perform in Bye Bye Birdie.  He was a real character playing a character, and doing a great job at it.  RIP, Bruce.
