On returning to Broadway:
“The people, the critics, are going to be expecting a lot. It has to be the best…You have to have the attitude that, ‘You know what? No one will stop me.' It’s going to be a magical year.”
“I think that I’ll do it later on this year, so that [the kids] are not too far apart in ages. A little girl! Dios mío, me muero... But we’re going to talk about that later on. It would be irresponsible to do it now.”
On whether he'd marry his partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella:
“We are not talking about it, we’re not thinking about it. But I’m so happy that in Europe we have the option. It’s amazing to think that we can say, ‘I feel like it. I’m ready. Let’s go.’ ”
On coming out:
Coming out was liberating “for myself, my family, my core fans. They feel more in touch with me and I feel more in touch with them. If I feel free, they’re going to feel free and vice versa. It’s contagious.”
