Anne & Richard

Our Story...

"Lost and Found" Shoreline CT Couple Happily Married at Last


Singing Their Wonderful Story!

Anne and Richard first met in 1968 while studying at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in NYC.  After a brief – but long-remembered romance, life events intervened and they parted for over 45 years.  Reunited and struck by destiny’s thunderbolt in early 2013, they quickly re-kindled their love.  They were married that December and along with dear friends from Broadway Concerts Direct, presented a very special Wedding Cabaret show for their guests!  They are now living happily in the home of their dreams on Connecticut’s beautiful Shoreline.  They are delighted to be sharing their story and singing their songs for you!
