I remember seeing Paul Linke at the Walnut Street Theater in Philadelphia in the 1990s. He wasn't on the main stage. He was working on the smaller soundstage upstairs at the theater. I can't remember the production though. I remember thinking he did an amazing acting job. If Paul reads this maybe he can shed some light on the play and the year.
