  • Quotes

    • Christian Hoff: Thank you so much. Papa, this is for us. He died when he was 52. He immigrated to this country in 1961, the year "Sherry" broke, and he met my Mom working at Saks Fifth Avenue. As a proud first-generation American, I celebrate this story every night with my man Tommy De Vito, who gave me these shoes to fill and the heart and soul of a king, warts and all -- nobody's perfect. This is a perfect story though, thanks to Des McAnuff, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, without which we wouldn't be able to weave this intricate story in this iconic music that we get to play every night. I thank my wife Melissa Hoff for coming to me and saving me and being there as a mother to my children. Our new baby is in her womb right now -- Hi baby! Lord, I thank you for bringing me back to Broadway and thank you for welcoming me. God bless Broadway. - Christian Hoff's Tony Award acceptance speech.

    • Christian Hoff: "Because of the way we interact with the audience, it feels as if we are receiving not only an applause or an ovation for our performances, which I hope we're doing, but we also have the weight of three decades or more of these songs and people's investment in the songs. So it's a ride unlike any other." - on Jersey Boys to
