Quotable Quote:
“This is the first time that I’ve ever been reviewed by The New York Times. This is an original, although I didn’t create the role, but in essence it was done in 1949, so why not say 63 years later? This was too good to turn down. It’s Broadway, and it’s Bobby Cannavale, and it’s the cast that I got to work with…how do you turn that down?” —Kind in an interview with Broadway.com, 4/13
