What do you love about New York?
1. I live in NoHo, and one of my favorite restaurants there for forever has been Five Points. It’s a market-fresh restaurant, so the menu reflects what they can source locally. I have never had a meal there that wasn’t delicious. And it’s very comfortable.
2. I love the High Line. My friends came recently from Toronto, one of them was for here for the first time and had never seen New York before. And the High Line is the perfect example of city and nature trying to find a home together. I like the idea of reclaiming something and making it beautiful yet still a part of the city. But it’s a kind of escape. I just love all that about it.
3. I love the many, many wonderful theaters in New York. I really adore the Richard Rodgers where I’m playing If/Then now. I saw Fences there with James Earl Jones. I saw In the Heights there. I saw Bill Irwin in Fool Moon. I’ve never seen anything there that wasn’t spectacular. It’s such a wonderful theater that also feels intimate for a big Broadway theater, you are not far away from anything. And it’s been beautifully refurbished.
