My favorite part of performing this solo show:
Doing Brazilian music.
Before I step onstage to perform, I typically:
The lyrics of my first song.
After a solo performance, I like to:
I need to eat something right now.
The background of my cell phone:
Me and my partner.
Where do I keep my Tony Award?
At home in Brazil. It’s hidden. I don’t show it for everybody.
My current NYC obsession is:
Central Park. I love it there.
The album I can’t stop listening to:
Sinatra and Jobim—the album that I’m doing here at 54!
A book I really want to find the time to read this year:
That’s a tough one. I want to read the whole Don Quixote by Cervantes, which is huge.
TV show I am so into right now:
The highlight of my day typically includes:
I love breakfast. I just wake up wanting to have that first sip of coffee. That makes my whole day better, waking up and knowing coffee is coming soon. I don’t know. Brazilians are so addicted to coffee. That’s what makes me want to get up from the bed.
