"The puppets are not enough! I don't want to spend my life crawling along the back roads of every second-rate country in Europe making dolls dance!... I've got to find a reason for living on this earth! Something to want, something to be...somehow to say...I am me!
-- Paul Berthalet (played by Brian Stokes Mitchell), Carnival (Feb. 10, 2002, City Center Encores!, NY)
