“Anyone seen Daddy Long Legs and think it should go to at least Off-Broadway? We saw it three times last week in Lowell, MA, and loved it so much. We see 60 plus Boston area plays a year and get to Broadway once or twice every year. I’ve never seen anything better, it’s perfection, music, lyrics, book, the set, the orchestra, the singing, and the acting. I envy the folks getting to see it for the first time, all those delightful surprises! (I have nothing to do with the production.)”
“The pressure comes in knowing how big a role this is, how big an opportunity this is, knowing that it’s the kind of role that you need to take ownership of and really command,” he says. “That’s where the pressure comes from, I’d say, not so much from previous Finches or productions or anything like that. It’s the kind of pressure that pushes you to be better, which I think is always the good kind of pressure.”
