In this week’s edition, we present A Toast to Dad, a special section that salutes the one and only man who can inspire everything from works of art to poetry and prose and pop-culture worship. Along those lines, we surveyed leaders in local theatre about their favorite dad-inspired songs. You’ll find their answers on p. 25

I’m sure you have your own list. I was a Daddy’s Girl, so I get overly sentimental every time I think about the songs that had special meaning for me and my dad—our own musical bond that allowed us to remember father/daughter moments over the years. As a baby, he would serenade me to sleep with Pearly Shells and other Hawaiian songs. And I grew up listening to his collection of albums by the likes of Andy Williams, Simon and Garfunkel, and Frank Sinatra (My Way was his ultimate anthem). On my wedding day, we danced to Nat King Cole.

To this day, I can still hear my dad’s lullaby: When I see them, my heart tells me that I love you…More than all those little pearly shells…
