So, I’m done (auditioning for Assassins). I’m feeling pretty good about myself. I remember walking away from the table. They said thank you, I said thank you, I’m walking out of the room, and just as my hand gets to the door, I hear, "Hey Raul!"
“Yes, Mr. Sondheim?”
He goes, “you’re fucking terrific, kid.”
And I said, “Thank you, Mr. Sondheim.”
And I walked out of the room… and I burst into tears.
