A FEW WORDS ABOUT THIS SHOW:
This was the show that I left AVENUE Q to do. Here are some of the reasons why:
* I got to work with choreographer Chris Gatelli… before he got his Tony, but I knew back then it was just a matter of time.
* I got to sing that great score.
* I got to be onstage without a puppet, which sometimes is nice for no other reason than you can easily brush your stray hairs away.
* There were good folks involved.
* I'd done some readings and I liked how the project was shaping up.
* They asked me.
No matter what anyone says, you cannot predict the success or failure of any creative venture. I rolled the dice and I have no regrets.
