"Tomorrow I have the opportunity to perform at the Tony Awards for the 7th time in ten years, three times with shows nominated for best musical and four times in the opening number. My favorite memories are of sharing the rehearsals and the stage with best friends, ex-girlfriends, and cast mates that will be part of my life forever. Its the extra rehearsals on a 16 show straight stretch. Its the early mornings spent waiting in a bus outside Radio City or the last second hugs right before you go onto the stage to do a number you've done a thousand times and yet somehow this one always feels different."


"As I look back, there's a good chance that I took the eight years and six shows I spent on Broadway for granted. Its where I "expected" to be so I wasnt cherishing every second. It seemed natural and omnipresent so it was something I felt would never go away. Now, its been a minute since Ive had the honor of being a name on the boards and I can look at it and appreciate it with a perspective earned. With that perspective I'm sending everyone participating in the Broadway season congratulations and love and hope they all enjoy tomorrow as a celebration of their lives, creativity, and opportunities; nominated or not. It's all fleeting, so enjoy what's in front of you now."

"Look around, breath, and soak it in. Don't get so caught up in doing it "right" that you miss the ride."
