The sparkle was back. “I took his hand at the table and said I would very much like to date him, and that’s when we began our relationship,” Mr. Polk said. “The relationship moved quickly, because we had already established such a close friendship, it was easy to transition with a foundation of trust.”
The couple eloped on Nov. 20, with Rabbi Robin Sparr officiating, in a courtyard on Commercial Street in Provincetown, Mass.
They had originally intended to marry May 24 at Elder Hall, an event space in Portland, Ore., before 28 guests that would have included Mr. Keudell’s parents, Molly and Ken Keudell of Portland, and Mr. Polk’s parents, Renee Peppercorn and David Polk of Cleveland.
Shortly after the couple married, Mr. Polk was asked how he and Mr. Keudell are dealing with the fact that Broadway remains dark as the coronavirus continues to disrupt.
“As general manager, Devin is focused on the development of new Broadway productions for when Broadway reopens, as well as making sure that his existing Broadway productions will be ready to reopen when Broadway resumes.
“I’m focused on managing the brands of the Broadway productions I am working on while the shows are in suspension,” Mr. Polk said in an email, adding that his office is also continuing to work on a variety of film and streaming projects, including working with John Stamos on the Disney+ show “Big Shot.”
