It’s time to wave goodbye to 2012, a year filled with cheerleaders, paperboys, porn stars and Patti. Before the big ball drops in Times Square, Broadway.com decided to poll your favorite Broadway stars to get their take on the high point of the year we’re leaving behind—and what they’re hoping is in store for the year ahead! Find out what the stars had to say about their resolutions for 2013.
MADISON DIRKS (Nick in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?)
Highlight of 2012: “From a professional standpoint, there is no question that standing on stage at the Booth Theater on October 13 while Edward Albee took his curtain call for the 50th anniversary of his play is the moment of the year for me. More than that, it's a moment that I'll carry with me for the rest of my life. But the absolute highlight of 2012 was being home in New Orleans and asking my best friend and love of my life to marry me. We got engaged, spent a few days in the French Quarter, and saw Springsteen in concert. Everything else this year? Step aside.”
Resolution for 2013: “My resolution is simply to spend as much time with friends and family as possible. I have five lovely siblings, three adorable nephews, one precious niece, and a wonderful mother. It always feels like there's not enough time to do everything you want to do, but I commit myself this year to my loved ones. Oh, and I should probably pick up that banjo and try to get better at that, too.”
