Personal Quotes (5)
I used to dream about this moment, now I'm in it. Tell the conductor to hold the baton a minute. I'll start with Alex Lacamoire and Bill Sherman; Kevin McCollum, Jeffrey Seller, and Jill Furman. Quiara, for keeping the pages turning. Tommy Kail for keeping the engine burning. For being so discerning through every all-nighter. Dr. Herbert for telling me, "You're a writer." I have to thank Andy Blank for every spank. Matter of fact, thank John Buzzetti for every drink. Thank the cast and crew for having each other's backs, son. I don't know about God but I believe in Chris Jackson. I don't know what else I got, I'm off the dome. I know I wrote a little show about home. Mr. Sondheim, look, I made a hat! Where there never was a hat! It's a Latin hat at that! Mom, Dad, and Cita, I wrote a play! Y'all came to every play. Thanks for being here today. Vanessa, who still leaves me breathless; thanks for loving me when I was broke and making breakfast And with that, I want to thank all my Latino people: this is for Abuelo Wisin and Puerto Rico! Thank you!
My wife's the reason anything gets done. She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one. Our son is her most beautiful reprise. We chase the melodies that seem to find us / Until they're finished songs and start to play When senseless acts of tragedy remind us / That nothing here is promised, not one day. This show is proof that history remembers / We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger; We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside. I sing Vanessa's symphony, Eliza tells her story. Now fill the world with music, love and pride.
We write music, we write songs to tell the story. Whether you're King, Kendrick, or Jeanine Tesori. I'm sorry if I start screaming these thanks hysterically: John Buzzetti, Tim Latham, Tom Coyne and Derek Lee. Tommy Kail set the stage to kick our boots through. Bill Sherman, Quest, and Tariq, the whole Roots crew. Sean at Warner Chapel, Riggs and Craig at Atlantic. Lacamoire my right-hand man. This frantic Hispanic is non-stop. The best idea goes in the pot. The cast unstoppable; the band is unbeatable; inimitable, inevitable, always inspiring me to pull through. Vanessa, Angie, Illie, Ellie, we adore you. Sebastian, daddy's bringing home a Grammy for you!
