Letter: Musical director deserves credit

I was so excited to see the great coverage of Follies in Hoopla, but it was a tremendous oversight not to mention the musical expertise Damon Cole as musical director has brought to the show for the past 33 years and continues to do so. He also has been involved in producing the show for many years and he is the reason so many performers return year after year.

He respects the musicians and performers he works with while creating an enjoyable experience for them. He has provided vocal performers in this area with memories to last a lifetime — he experience of life on the “Broadway” stage.

Damon is Follies and he deserves better than this. Follies is and always has been a “family” working together and to leave out such an important part of that “family” is a huge mistake.
