“Since I was a little boy, I have had
two loves in my life, sports and the arts. Too often I have seen people who are
a lover of one of these humanistic expressions dismiss the other, but to me

happen and then dreaming about it for yourself. I hope that with Jackie & Me we can bring lovers of
both sports and theater to the Denver Center and make them discuss, think, and
dream.” – Aaron M. Davidson, actor
