This was from a recent interview he gave to David Mixner and I thought it captures what we are all about, so I am sharing it with you.
"Cabaret and concert work is a great high, but the challenge is that you are forced to be yourself. Not a small feat for some actors. We are usually playing characters, and in these two disciplines, the only way you will truly succeed is if you let in the audience.. Anyone can get up and sing pretty songs and tell a few jokes. But unless you let the audience see your heart and feel a connection to you, it doesn't work."
