My condolences to Sal's family. I was a student of Sal's when he taught English at Mater Christi HS. Sal was one of the greatest teacher I have ever met in my life. He was able to see what you were capable of doing before you even recognized it in yourself. Then he would encourage and inspire you to go beyond the boundaries you imposed upon yourself. Sal was also a hysterically funny man whose quips still make me laugh many years after he uttered them. Rest in peace Sal. You will always have a place in our hearts.

For many theatrical performers, myself included, Sal WAS the embodiment of the theatre world. He showed us how theatre life could be a fun romp, a crushing heartbreak, an unequaled ego boost, and brutally hard work all rolled into one -- and often happening simultaneously!

During the time I knew Sal, I sat in the audience, both enjoying and admiring his work as a performer and as a director. I had the honor of working next to him on stage as a fellow actor, as well as benefiting from his guidance as a director. I also produced shows he directed for the theatre company for which I was in charge at that time. Sal never failed to deliver. Audiences loved him. Performers loved him. We all loved him.

Sal was larger than life. He energized hundreds of young performers. I was one of many. I first met him when someone invited me to a production of She Loves Me that Sal directed at OLPH. I was in the audience and totally enchanted. The shows that I did with Sal were fun, even magical. When you had the desire to play a part that you might not have had the opportunity to play elsewhere, and other directors were saying No,Sal looked into your soul and said Yes, you can do this.

He trained me to go on with my theatrical aspirations, but most directors and producers were not nurturing and creative like Sal. Of course he was tough, temperamental and witty, theatre people do not bore you! Sal was the quintessential theatre person. The shows I did in the era with Sal were truly my heyday, although I did not know it then. I am so grateful for that time in my life and all of the other tremendously talented people I worked with. I know that Sal is up there waiting for us, singing Send in the Clowns up in heaven, and planning our next big show.

Sorry to hear about Sal. As I watched his video on Mater Christie Drama site I was enthralled with his voice. It sounds like he maintained his love of the theater throughout his life. May he now be at peace.
