Personal Quote:

[re favorite episode of The Twilight Zone (1959)] Pretty much anything William Shatner is in is great. He's great at playing that "I'm the only one sane in the world" character. What "Twilight Zone" did was show we all have a great capacity for good and evil. In the best works of fiction, there's no mustache-twirling villain. I try to write shows where even the bad guy's got his reasons. See more »

Trivia:

Was nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the play "In the Heights" collaborating with Quiara Alegría Hudes. See more »
