Larry Dachslager taught me everything I know. Whether this speaks positively or negatively of Larry, I leave for others to determine. But I can say, without hesitation, that Larry’s brilliance as an expert in film, theatre, and music is singular. His breadth of knowledge alone is unparalleled, but when coupled with his keen artistic eye and profound analytical abilities, Larry is a truly unique specimen of creative genius. I am just one among hundreds of beneficiaries of Larry’s immense talent, wisdom, and kindness, and for that, I am eternally grateful. He is still the person I turn to if I have questions that I need to figure out. Pretty much everything good that’s come to me in my career can be traced back to Larry Dachslager.
