Lori Taylor Gray and Ken Gray

Ken remembers the first time he saw Lori. He was at a performance of “Yellowman” at the Detroit Repertory Theatre.

She kept looking down each row until she got to me,” he recalls. “And I thought, ‘Oh, don’t let her sit next to me.’”

Spoiler Alert: She sat next to him.
