Personal Quote:

[re favorite episode of The Twilight Zone (1959)] Pretty much anything William Shatner is in is great. He's great at playing that "I'm the only one sane in the world" character. What "Twilight Zone" did was show we all have a great capacity for good and evil. In the best works of fiction, there's no mustache-twirling villain. I try to write shows where even the bad guy's got his reasons. See more »

Trivia:

Won the Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) for "In the Heights" in 2008. See more »
