Burgess, a former cast member of Broadway's Jersey Boys, was in attendance at the musical's tenth anniversary celebration Nov. 9. When asked what he was able to reveal about "Kimmy Schmidt," he said, "Tituss falls in love, and he has his ridiculous one-man show that is probably going to offend everybody."
But, before Burgess landed the television role that gave him a 2015 Emmy Award nomination, he admitted to almost giving up on show business.
"I gave up several times," he admitted. "I actually had accepted a job at Marymount Manhattan College to teach before 'Kimmy Schmidt,' but here's a word of advice… Yes, it's about sustaining yourself fiscally, in the way of arts, because that is what we need to continue… [But], there's a much larger issue. If you serve the greater you that is the 'teaching artist' — if you honor that and are obedient to that power, the rest of the stuff works out in its own time, so calm the f*ck down."
"Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is slated to return to Netflix in March 2016.
