"You know when you get the opportunity to do a show that hits home on so many fundamental levels.

"In other words, it sends a message that says 'everyone's voice is valued and valuable' but it's also entertaining, it makes you laugh sometimes but it also makes you cry and feel," added the actor.

"So our show, the writing is so good that I would love to do this show as long as the audience wants to see it and as long as they'll have me...Because I really love doing the show."
