Personal Quote:

I try to make each of the characters different. I think the trick is to cement in the reality, to make it logical and real to yourself. Once there's a reality, I think you can make it as crazy as you want it to be.

Trivia:

Currently appearing as Mayor Shinn in "The Music Man" on Broadway. Previews begin on April 5, 2000 with the official opening on April 27 (Neil Simon Theatre). See more »
