Quotable Quote:
“I’ve learned I am stronger than I think I am—both emotionally and stamina-wise. It helped prove to me that I could get through an ordeal as daunting as [doing two original shows in one season] and still come out relatively unscathed. Maybe my sanity was a little bit broken, but that was it." —Jordan in an interview with Broadway.com, 3/12
