Episode Highlights

“It’s even sad to hear when people in the industry, even other actors who all experience the same things, will negatively look at a show even if the show does have some points it needs to grow, the fact is that everyone is creating art and everyone is pouring their heart and soul into work and believing in it, even if it’s a show about a blade of grass. There’s always a redemptive property or idea that the actor or composer or writer is trying to get across to an audience. There is somebody or some people who need to hear it and who will hear it. Most work should be respected and given a chance, and if for nothing else at least for the effort it takes in creating what we create here on Broadway.”

“Listen, when you find a place where you’re happy, when you find a place where people treat you with respect and love, where you can have fun and artistically grow, there is nothing better than that safe, fulfilling, positive environment.”

“My job is to keep my life and my windows clean so that His light shines through me, and if I focus on that, I don’t have to worry about anything else. I’m good.”

“The key to my “success” is to love people and to serve people.”

“Wherever you find yourself as an artist, I believe there is a way for you to use your gift to uplift people and change people’s lives.”
