You and your words flooded my senses, your sentences left me defenseless. You built me palaces out of paragraphs, you built cathedrals.”
Lin-Manuel Miranda

Neil Patrick Harris
“There’s a kid in the middle of nowhere who’s sitting there living for Tony performances. Singing and flipping along with the Pippins, and Wickeds, and Kinkys, Matildas, and Mormons's. So we might reassure that kid, and do something to spur that kid, ‘cause I promise you, all of us up here tonight, we were that kid.”
Neil Patrick Harris

“Let's sing our way out of this”

“Mitchell Maxwell’s Maxims
• You have to create your own professional path. There’s no longer a roadmap for an artistic career.
• Follow your heart and the money will follow.
• Create a benchmark of your own progress. If you never look down while you’re climbing the ladder you won’t know how far you’ve come.
• Don’t define success by net worth, define it by character. Success, as it’s measured by society, is a fleeting condition.
• Affirm your value. Tell the world “I am an artist,” not “I want to be an artist.”
• You must actively live your dream. Wishing and hoping for someday doesn’t make it happen. Get out there and get involved.
• When you look into the abyss you find your character.
• Young people too often let the fear of failure keep them from trying. You have to get bloody, sweaty and rejected in order to succeed.
• Get your face out of Facebook and into somebody’s face. Close your e-mail and pick up the phone. Personal contact still speaks loudest.
• No one is entitled to act entitled. Be willing to work hard.
• If you’re going to buck the norm you’re going to have to embrace the challenges.
• You have to love the journey if you’re going to work in the arts.
• Only listen to people who agree with your vision.
• A little anxiety is good but don’t let it become fear, fear makes you inert.
• Find your own unique voice. Leave your individual imprint on the world, not a copy of someone else.
• Draw strength from your mistakes; they can be your best teacher.”
Mitchell Maxwell

Lin-Manuel Miranda
“I am the one thing in life I can control.
I am inimitable.
I am an original”
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton: Vocal Selections

Steve Kluger
“And if Henry Higgins is not the most reprehensible character ever written for the stage, that's only because somewhere, somehow, someone is composing a musical biography of Ronald Reagan”
Steve Kluger, My Most Excellent Year

“I chose and my world was shaken. So what. The choice might have been mistaken, but choosing was not.”
Stephen Sondheim "Sunday in the Park with George"

“When it all comes true Just the way you planned It's funny but the bells don't ring It's a quiet thing.”
Fred Ebb, The Words and the Music of Kander and Ebb: Piano/Vocal/Chords
