During the interview, Braff revealed that at age 13, he settled on a musical theater theme for his Bar Mitzvah, unlike the majority of his peers who chose to center their rite of passage on sports. "I've always been a musical theater geek," he confessed to Today's Savannah Guthrie. "So mine had a musical theater theme - humiliating!"
