Even with all the stuff we had to do [on Smash], nothing is as difficult as eight shows a week on Broadway. Compared to that, 16-hour days are a piece of cake.
I always wanted my mom to sing to me, but she read this article that said tone-deaf mothers should not sing to their children. I'm sure that's not true, but she was deathly afraid, so she would play me recordings. I grew up listening to The Manhattan Transfer and "The Music Man" and all kinds of stuff.
[on Carnegie Mellon University] [It was] the most amazing experience of my life [even though] it was so difficult I almost left about 20 times. Our teachers always expected the best from us and so we learned how to provide it.
