Question: Would you consider doing a Tommy Tune sitcom?
Tune: "No! TV is too boring! What kind of perfection can you hope to achieve in a 28-minute show once a week? ... The best things on television are commercials, because they spend a lot of money and time on them."
--From nTheater, October 24, 1997.
"I did 900 shows [of 'EFX']. When the contract was over, I felt very proud that I had fulfilled it, but it was the hardest thing I ever did. I had 13 costume changes per show, which is really a lot; I hung upside down; I rose up, I came down, I flew over the audience. We did 10 shows a week in Vegas but it's two shows a night, so we actually have two days off-like a weekend-which I had never had in my life in show business." --Tommy Tune on his turn in the Las Vegas extravaganza "EFX" quoted in "Charles Nelson's Casts and Forecasts" column on the Web site Theatermania.com, January 11, 2002.
