Good article on David here. Sorry to see him leaving Philadelphia though and wish him the best.

      Agreed. Funny to read "Grendel's Lair" (Never went, but remember it being mentioned on the radio when I was a kid). Also enjoyed reading that Ansill applied to Ladder 15 off Craig's List.

        I am pretty old. I was appearing in the play that preceded the one that was on when David worked there ("The Fantastick's" - nothing like the "naked" play!). I guess I just missed meeting him earlier. Grendel's Lair was a great place owned by Phil Roy -- one of the icons from the days when South Street was artsy and cool. Of course, we old folks always say our day was better. :-)
