“I am a tragedian. I am a comedian. I am fearless on a stage. I’m scared to death in my own life. Paranoid. Terrified. But put me on the stage, and there’s nothing I won’t do to the fullest. It hasn’t been easy. But there was nothing that was going to stop me from doing what I was supposed to do. This was my calling. Does that answer your question?”
Oh, Patti Lupone brings it in this profile. BRB gonna shout from the rooftops: THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WAS GOING TO STOP ME FROM DOING WHAT I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO.
