I loved Rent when I first heard it, but it grew on me and so did Tick, Tick... Boom. Some songs are more interesting than others and sometimes the ones that never stood out at first end up being the best to perform.

Some suggestions for you :

You figure out what your standards are, and I think that's important.

A cardio-funk class - I should have at least taken one of those. But it's always terrified me. I'm never one to be a dancer on the dance floor, even at a bar or a club.

With the Tonys it's a little tricky because a lot of the funnier jokes are more insider, so people watching at home may not get a Julie Taymor reference the way that New Yorkers would. So you have to figure out what comedy plays to a large audience and still respect the individuals who are there.

I enjoy being a hyphenate. I've always thought of my career as a plate spinner in the circus.

I like the tube more than the NY subway though, you've got cushioned seats.

I'm probably my biggest critic. I worry that if you spend any quality time reveling in good things then karma will slap you upside the head, so I try to stay as even keel as I'm able.

Mr. Steven Bochco is a very wise man. After a many-monthed nationwide search to find a precocious teenage doctor, he hired me.

I'm a very lucky man in this chapter of my professional life, 'cause I get to do jobs with wildly different skill sets.

I don't know, but I think kids just want to be listened to, so I want to make sure I do that.

I've gotten to hang out with Elmo, I'm the Fairy Shoeperson on 'Sesame Street'. So hopefully our kids will get to see and hear me as much as they're able.

I want to be able to infuse some youthful energy and comedy while appreciating the generations before.

I'm in a play on Broadway, I have an animated TV show coming up, I have a few movies that just came out.

I felt a little green, because Shakespeare writes the thought process within the text; it was tricky not to think of what to say and then say it, and instead just deliver the lines.

I think when dance is mediocre, it's painful. But when dance is really impressive, it destroys.
