We asked Jim …
Q: What’s your favorite TED talk?
A: “Thomas Schumacher’s ‘Embracing All Audiences’ from the first TEDxBroadway”
Q: Who has inspired you the most?
A: “My father — he led a life of hard work and family and taught me about responsibility, family and being a mentor.”
Q: What do you appreciate most about the Broadway community?
A: “Community and a sense of belonging. I met Tom Hanks when he was rehearsing for his Broadway debut. I said to him, ‘Welcome to the Broadway community,’ and his eyes lit up. It means that much to those of us lucky enough to be in it.”
Q: What upcoming Broadway show are you most excited about?
A: “Toss up between The Iceman Cometh and the revival of Angels in America. Millennium Approaches was one of the most memorable theatrical experiences of my life.”

A: “Joe Papp, Prince, Barack Obama, Bill Parcells and Gregory Hines.”
Q: Who’ll be most excited about your TEDx Broadway talk?
