The second time he had a funeral to attend. Rose's brother Evan and her boyfriend Barry came to the first performance, but her mother couldn't because she was off getting married. Cinnamon's parents couldn't make the the first because of her father's heart problems and the second because of her mother's chest cold. Neither Steven nor Howard's parents showed up either time.
