Caroline, or Change


"This was the show that changed my life. I had no idea what it was about. I was walking by TKTS alone on my day off from The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, where I was a waiter. I got a seat in the mezzanine. I geeked out because Shoshana Bean was two or three rows down from me and then my jaw dropped. I knew Caroline. I lived with her. She raised me. Even Tonya Pinkins' face looked like that of my relatives. After seeing that show I dropped everything that made me unhappy in my life. I quit my job, I got a new agent and decided that I would no longer be a desperate actor. I would just be an actor. I saw that show five times. Six years later I did a show with Veanne Cox and realized that in my life.....the extraordinary is the ordinary. #fullcircle"
