    "'So, um, people have been making a couple of comments to me, like, 'Have you had another biopsy on your nose? What happened to your nose?' he said while doing some tricks with his boater hat.

    “PS. A huge shoutout to all the Broadway shows opening these past days,” he said about lockdown changing everything. “The heart of Broadway is back and beating strongly! I can’t wait to be part of it.”
