I do still get a lot of recognition from that show. It was great at that time. I was granted an incredible education, because it was Steven Bochco, high quality, one camera... had a great time and made some money to boot.
I loved Rent when I first heard it, but it grew on me and so did Tick, Tick... Boom. Some songs are more interesting than others and sometimes the ones that never stood out at first end up being the best to perform.
I'm shocked at how early everything closes here. But people start earlier. I miss the late nightlife in NYC, but then again I sing and burn so much energy in the show that it's probably good-I get to go home and sleep.
