We asked Ron …
Q: Do you sing in the shower? What’s your go-to song?
A: “You mean there are people who don’t sing in the shower? On days when I’m feeling especially spiritual, it’s probably ‘Amazing Grace.’ On days when I’m joyous or in a funk, it’s Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy.’”
Q: What’s on your bucket list?
A: “Mostly places I haven’t visited. These include Bali, Bora Bora and Fiji. Then it’s artists I’d love to meet and, ideally, collaborate with: Jeffrey Wright, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Samuel L. Jackson, Meryl Streep, Daniel Day-Lewis.”
Q: What’s your idea of the perfect meal?
A: “Just about anything that’s breakfast, as it’s my favorite meal of the day. If I had to pick one meal, it’d probably be bacon (crisp), eggs over medium, grits and fresh fruit.”
Q: What’s a talent you wish you had?
A: “I’d love to be able to do an aria really well. At this point, I’ll take singing an aria at all!”
Q: Are you ready to give your TEDxBroadway talk/performance?
A: “I construct, deconstruct, throw out, reconstruct, modify, boil down in cycles. I’m sorta operating by that saying about writers: They never finish, they just stop writing.”
