AARON C. FINLEY (Drew in Rock of Ages)
"The cheesiest I've ever heard is reaching for a girl's shirt tag and saying, 'Sorry, just checking to see if you were made in heaven.'"
ALLI MAUZEY (Glinda in Wicked)
"I'm in a band."
BRYCE PINKHAM (Monty in A Gentleman's Guide)
"Kiss me if I'm wrong, but dinosaurs still exist, right?"
RICHARD H. BLAKE (Tommy DeVito in Jersey Boys)
"'I worked with a guy who would put his fingers in a glass of water and flick it on a girl. Then he would say, 'Sorry, let's get you out of these wet clothes.'"
SANTINO FONTANA (Moss Hart in Act One)
"So...what's your story?"
MARY MICHAEL PATTERSON (Christine in Phantom)
"A guy once said, 'You don't scare me, wanna go out sometime?' Then I thought about all the people I've potentially scared in the past."
KRYSTAL JOY BROWN (Diana Ross in Motown)
"The first thing my father ever said to my mother was, 'You don't have to talk to me, but you sure are looking good.' My mom said it was sooo cheesy. But hey, it worked!"
KELLI O'HARA (Francesca in The Bridges of Madison County)
"If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?"
