Quotable Quote:
“I’ve been through [Tony nomination season] twice before: This is my trifecta! I haven’t done a new musical in 10 years, so it’s a whole different animal now. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster and a wild two-year ride. This is a culmination of two years work since we started this show with workshops. It’s really exciting.” —Chamberlin in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/10
