Quotable Quote:
“[Sean Hayes] is my partner in the show, and everything I do that’s funny is because of him. I’m so excited to spend an awards season with [fellow nominee] Barbara Cook. [Barbara Cook at Carnegie Hall] is the first album I ever got when I was a girl. She was really my introduction to Broadway. And [fellow nominee] Angela Lansbury is a great heroine of mine. I’m just really happy.” —Finneran in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/10
