Quotable Quote:
"It’s a bitch of a play. It’s incredibly hard to do, and it’s very daunting when you start chomping into this thing. Now [on Broadway] I feel great, having had the experience of doing it twice before. I think all of us feel more confident this time."  —Morton in an interview with Broadway.com, 10/12
