“The first time I was nominated for a Tony [for Spring Awakening] I was an infant—I felt lucky to have even been allowed in. When I won, as you’ve probably seen from the YouTube videos, I was a little out of control! This time, there’s a lot of me invested personally in the show.” —Jones in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/4/10
