Personal Quote:

No matter what, I will always prefer a live performance. Whether it be a play or a musical, or playing music live. As long as it's live, it's the best because there's sort of an immediacy to connection between an audience and a performer, whereas where you do film or television, you're at the whim of so many different forces.

Trivia:

Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who wrote the scores for The Little Mermaid (1989), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992) and many more, once handed a hundred dollar tip to Darren Criss doing an acoustic medley of his songs at a coffee shop. See more »
