HE IS a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico. In moments of stress, he “reverts in a culinary way” to his home state, turning to chips, salsa, enchiladas, and margaritas.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE impressively agile specimen he is, bounding through a hoop at the 2013 Tonys, his knees are “remarkably crackly going up and down stairs”—a souvenir, he believes, of the physically grueling ’97–’98 touring production of Rent.
HE RETAINS his signature mussed-forward hairstyle with an oversize, ChapStick-like grooming product from Indonesia called a Tancho Tique.
