I'd like to know where John Davidson is right now.
—Betsy George, Ohio

The singer/actor/former host of Hollywood Squares can be seen this summer in the musical State Fair at a theater in Beach Haven, N.J. (pop. 1,278), and in The Will Rogers Follies in Tulsa, Okla. He also performs regularly at theaters, theme parks and clubs across the country. "Trying to anticipate and manage the relationship between audience and performer is fascinating to me," the Pittsburgh, Pa., native says. "It always has been. The challenge of really touching the audience with words and songs is all-consuming to me." Davidson also runs a company with his wife that makes educational card games focused on geography. It was created when the couple was home-schooling the youngest of their three children. "I am more proud of the Borderline geography card games, which my wife and I co-created, than anything I have ever been a part of in my life," he says. "I have always loved maps, travel, and geography. Somehow if I have my 'bearings' regarding a location, or a place where people live, or where something has taken place it gives me a feeling of who and where I am." The games are available in toy stores and educational parent-teacher stores across the country.
