By ROBERT W. PLYLER , The OBSERVER

BUFFALO - The Gospel according to Mark, in the Bible, famously says, "A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown, and among his own relatives, and in his own household." (Mark 6:4) That's the New American Standard translation. The same may be true for a musician, as well. Twenty years ago November of this year, the musical show "First Lady Suite," by Westfield native Michael John LaChiusa opened in New York City, at the highly-respected Public Theater, where it won the Obie Award for best show and a special citation for the composer. LaChiusa had written not only the music, but the book of the show and the lyrics, as well.
