For me, there was a special treat. After the showing, there was a Q&A with the director and his crew. It occurred to me to ask a question regarding how remarkable I thought it was that PNB opened itself up for what could be at times a painful or at least embarrassing exposure (as an aside for this posting....HURRAY for the courage of PNB management, I say). I mentioned in my question that I had recently read Stephen Manes book covering that same 2006 season. As soon as I mentioned Manes's name, this very pleasant gentleman sitting 1 seat away from me said "That would be me!". I had randomly sat down immediately next to Stephen and his wife for the showing. I love coincidences like that! The 3 of us had quite an interesting talk in the lobby afterward. I loved Manes's book, and it was a real thrill for me to meet him.
