The play received mostly positive reviews and Harold made an auspicious debut on New York theatrical stage.In 2003, Harold starred in Wake, produced by Susan Landau Finch and directed by her husband Henry Leroy Finch.Among other things, he stated: "I'm straight, but the character was too important to me to muddle his world with my private life. I think it may have helped to introduce Brian as a believable gay man. However it played, it's been out of my hands for a long time".
But he’s got some past history with Amanda (played by Julie Benz) and I think he’s sort of trying to get reunited with her on some level.
He’s really interested in having her come on board with his vision of how the Government should be run.
