“I remember Audra McDonald, coming back stage and saying “make sure when you warm up…” and I remember her putting her hands around my diaphragm and saying I want you to take a deep breath in and she would teach me how to extend my diaphragm and tell me what scales to do. Peter Friedman taught me about being on time, and being ready for your cue and how to behave on stage. And Marin taught me how to have fun and she taught me how to laugh and to not be so hard on yourself. All those little things were my lessons and I got them without taking singing lessons, acting lessons – those were my teachers and I owe everything to them. That was Ragtime for me.”

But I won’t hide inside, I gotta get out
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out

"I love the song so much, it’s just been such a great rock for me. It gives me strength, it gives me joy and I really hope that you guys love it. So this is Cannonball by me, Lea Michele. Hope you guys liked it, I love it, so I hope you do too.”

“And then there was the time we went to Washington, DC, together so that I could sing for President Obama. Melanie was there in the hotel room with us, doing my makeup, and I was trying to focus on the task at hand; serenading the leader of the free world is no small thing. But Jonathan was intent on getting me to laugh and so a wrestling match/tickle fest went too far, and he made me laugh so hard I peed my pants. I assure you, I showered-but thirty short minutes later, I was in front of the president. Those are the moments that keep you sane, and so I’m eternally grateful to Jonathan for always helping me keep my feet on the ground. If peeing my pants is what it takes, I’m always game.” — Lea Michele talks about Jonathan Groff in Brunette Ambition (x)
