“I’ve timed it,” Cullum says. “It’s eleven minutes.”

And we do mean quick: He’s in the Clurman Theatre on West 42nd Street 90 seconds later.
AT THE KEEN COMPANY’S HEROES
This time, he’s had a few minutes to run lines with castmates.
He could just squeak back to the Music Box for the Osage curtain call, but skips it: “I had it in my contract that I don’t have to.” He’s in a taxi headed home at 10:18.
