A young woman who bravely introduced herself in a determined effort, illustrating a mastery of strength over stutter, then blew the crowd away singing "Put Your Hand Up," her own composition. Her act illustrated the success of an organization committed to helping young people who stutter step forward in school, theater, and life with skill and confidence. Steve Kazee, the star of this year's Tony-winning Once said he was moved to participate because he lisped as a kid, not the same thing, he said, but he could relate. The evening's host, Paul Rudd on his night off from Grace at the Cort Theater, played a stutterer in a play, Three Days of Rain, a few seasons ago and came to Taro Alexander, Our Time's founder, to learn how to d ...
