"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 Mormanses. 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, Tony Awards 2013 Opening Number (via halisimone)
"The backstage area was in complete pandemonium - a word which here means “actors and stagehands running around attending to last-minute details.”"
— Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning, A Series of Unfortunate Events
