Saratoga Springs native David Hyde Pierce's charm and generosity are not an act

David Hyde Pierce is a charming gentleman who took the time to help turn Home Made Theater's 25th anniversary celebration last Saturday into a sellout, donated priceless tickets and a backstage hello to his next Broadway show this fall for the fundraiser's auction, and delighted the audience with banter about his family, praise for his father and a few songs.
But that's not all.
The Saratoga Springs native was in the audience for last Friday's performance of the high school musical "Bells Are Ringing," and afterwards surprised the drama club with a backstage visit. A photo of David with the drama club took up most of page 3 in the print edition of The Saratogian on Tuesday. You can see it online by searching for David Hyde Pierce.
Saturday, April 3, is his 51st birthday (if the Associated Press is accurate). Happy birthday!
Check out Saturday's Saratogian for a photo page from the Home Made Theater party.
