“I love working in television, and I’ve been thrilled to be a part of so many wonderful shows. I worked with Lady Gaga on ‘Gossip Girl,’ and the brilliant Felicity Huffman on ‘Desperate Housewives,’ but I think my favorite TV job so far was the pilot I shot for the CW Network this year called ‘Joey Dakota.’”
“As an actor, when you are called upon to do a job, you are oftentimes convinced you can’t do it. You say to yourself ‘I don’t have the talent for this; they are going to figure out I’m a fraud.’ And then you watch how the others do it, and fake your confidence.”
“Every bar mitzvah I ever went to was, ‘Here comes ‘Oh, What a Night.’”
“I saw my first Broadway show when I was 10 years old. I saw ‘Big: The Musical’ and I remember going out to dinner with my mom afterward and reading the souvenir program like crazy!”
“I’ve been performing since I was very little, about three years old. I was inspired at first by the MTV artists of the ’80s and started putting on ‘shows’ in the apartment, most of them set to Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ album. In my mind, there was a full lighting rig behind me… but it was just a couch.”
“‘Dawn (Go Away)’ is a sad lyric, but the melody is so happy and fun.”
“As a person, I’m just really kitchy and corny, and I love ’70s variety shows.”
“‘Jersey Boys’ was a lot of running around and a lot of energy, but it was more stylized movement.”
“A lot of my friends were a lot into theatre a lot earlier than I was. A lot of my friends were kids who were in The Broadway Kids and the kids auditioning for Gavroche in ‘Les Miz.’ I was never that kid. I was weaned on Michael Jackson. Not literally, because that would have been odd.”
“I dropped out of high school three days into my senior year because I hated it because New York City public school is a mess. I certainly wasn’t one for sitting in a classroom. Then I went off to college to North Carolina School of the Arts, then quit that after two years.”
“I get tips from Bob Gaudio. And one of my songs somehow caught the attention of one of my idols, Marty Panzer, who wrote big hits for Barry Manilow. So two guys who inspired me to write lyrics are now teaching me to write.”
“My dad grew up in Pittsburgh in the ’50s, and he used to sing Four Seasons songs on the stoop. He made me listen to Cousin Brucie – the guy who broke the Four Seasons on the radio. So I knew all of their songs, but I didn’t know they were all by the same group.”
