This is a well writen, cute intro to a cute stage door story told by Saratoga Gal at the Clayboard:
There are 2 different people that are out there. One, kind of serious a good share of the time, cleanshaven and usually well dressed, and a nice looking man. The 2nd has a mustache, and he tends (or has tended) to get a little anxious when he is out there, and I have never seen him smile.
I don't remember this being posted, but on the Matinee on Sat. the 11th, there was a good crowd at Stage door. In fact not many places to stand at the rail as soon as we got out. I was in SRO, and got right out, and I got half a spot, 2 others behind me did not get a spot. When the door opened and Jerome & the Shubert security guy came out the announcement was "ok, sorry to tell you to put away your pens"..... (and everyone groaned), AND they continued "Because Clay has his own marker!!!".. and everyone cheered. They were quite pleased with themselves for making people believe for an instant that Clay would not be out.
