Personal Quote:

When I started out, I thought I was going to be a Shakespearean actor...Then I decided I was too weird-looking, too tall and thin - I'm 6 foot 3. But that's helped me as a dancer. I've known a lot of dancers who were ten times better than me, but who were short. Turns out the market wants 'em tall and thin, so I got jobs and they didn't.

Trivia:

Azito was nominated for a 1980 Tony Award for his role of the Sergeant in "The Pirates of Penzance". He later reprised the role on film in The Pirates of Penzance (1983). See more »
