I've been very blessed in my personal life and in my career and I have never been ungrateful for what I have.
Sondheim is the Shakespeare of the musical theater world.
My sense of religion is Einstein's sense of relativity. I don't believe in God. I believe that energy never dies. So the possibility exists that you might be breathing in some other form of Moses or Buddha or Muhammad or Bobby Kennedy or Roosevelt or Martin Luther King or Jesus.
In my prayers every day, which are a combination of Hebrew prayers and Shakespeare and Sondheim lyrics and things people have said to me that I've written down and shoved in my pocket, I also say the name of every person I've ever known who's passed on.
Well, I'm not a critic, I'm just a worker. So, I'm always grateful for anything the critics say - good or bad.

Peace in the Middle East isn't going to be created by another war or violent act on the other side.
I have the strength from my mother, the survivability. I have wonderful qualities from my mother - but please, Mother, forgive me - I heard judgment constantly about my father.
I'm blessed. I have a 13-year-old girl's eye and a 14 year-old boy's eye. I've been given the gift of sight by people who decided to donate organs. I try to do as much organ-donor work as I can.
It's what Shakespeare's mission was - to illuminate our thoughts and struggles and bring about the possibility of getting the most we can out of a day as opposed to least in this brief moment we're here.
I desperately want to see the day today and do the best I can not miss a shred of sunlight. It'll be over before I know it.
I love my work, I love the people I work with, I do the best I can.
There's something about singing that I just love. It makes me feel freer than anything in the world.
