It was improv class. He still remembers the room. The first time he saw his Melanie.
Walking back into that empty room at the Second City Training Center some six years later, with the light streaming through the giant windows and highlighting dancing dots of dust floating down to the vacant row of chairs below, I could almost hear the haunts of their laughter from those first few days. As Melanie spun around the room into arabesques of heightening difficulty, it was as if she was somehow turning back the time. For just a moment, you could see the Melanie from six years ago dancing and twirling right alongside her. And it was not one, but two Alton’s looking on. One looking adoringly at the woman who became his bride, and the other just seeing the love of his life for the very first time. And as I stood in that room, with past melting into present, I was overcome by a love that is sure to last the ages.
Meet: Melanie & Alton
