VIDEO: Tony Nominee Jefferson Mays Goes Behind-the-Scenes of 'GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE'
In the exclusive USA Today video, the actor talks about his role in the show, which he says gives him a nightly cardio workout. "I'm in perpetual motion on stage, and off stage," says the talented star. "I'm doing extremely strenuous and complicated costume changes. The entire evening just passes in a blur; I'm awash in sweat and utterly spent. And we have two shows on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I'm in my 50th year, you know - I have to go crawling home and into my oxygen tent, practically."
