The problem with COVID was that I had made the decision to bring ‘A Chorus Line’ here in Spanish in 2020. We would’ve been the first Spanish-speaking company to hit Broadway — and in a major way, because we were going to stay for a minimum of six months.
In my mind, I’ve wanted to do “Company” for a long time. I asked permission from Mr. Sondheim through his people to elevate the age of the main character, who I play. They were sending us emails and saying that there was no problem with that.
When I saw “Hamilton” I wrote, “It’s the best musical ever on Broadway (except for ‘The Producers’).” That’s how it is in show-business. It’s always, “You’re good – but you’re not me!”
