Personal Quotes (4)

"I actually almost turned down my role in The Emperor's Club. It was between the film and a play that I wanted to do. Ultimately, I definitely made the right decision. Working with Kevin Kline was like a master class in acting. He is the most amazing actor and person, truly one of the smartest people I've ever met. I cherish every moment that I spent on that set." (Excerpt from interview with The Bay News 2002)
[on the music of 'Ghostlight'] The Act I closer, "The Shepherd," is very much a musical nervous breakdown, which - let's face it - is just a lot of fun to write. We encompassed many melodies that the audience has already heard throughout the first act. Our lead character, Olive, is dealing with an affair, an unfulfilled marriage and a downward spiral into drugs and alcohol. She is confused and we believe the music really reflects that. (Excerpt from interview with The New York Times - September 2011)
[when asked what songs from other musicals he wish he'd written] Stephen Sondheim's 'Moments in the Woods' from 'Into the Woods' and 'Around the World' from 'Grey Gardens,' by Scott Frankel and Michael Korie. Both have such vivid lyrics, with whimsical and original rhyme schemes, which are paramount. (Excerpt from interview with The New York Times - September 2011)
[on 'Ghostlight'] If even one person leaves the theatre affected by the piece or moved by her story, then we've done our job. (Excerpt from interview with Emerging Artists)
