Quotable Quote:
"We go out there and try to play and listen and find new things every single night. I think it catches on and other people in the company see that. It's not about personalities, it's not about being a star. It's about doing the work and showing up every day and having a great time loving what you do.""Burstein to Broadway.com, 6/16
