Thoughts From the Ugly Duckling, By Brian Dietzler

Yes, Tina Fey was my first director at Summer Stage. “Wow, you know Tina Fey!?!?!” Er, um, I was 13 at the time, but technically yes, I suppose I know her . . . . “That is SO awesome! Did you see when she had that pizza from some place in Upper Darby?” Yep. I eat there all the time. It’s Pica’s. Delicious. “Can you believe she came from Upper Darby?” Yes, it is a cool place with a fascinating history and Summer Stage. “Was Tina cool?
