VIDEO: Andrew Rannells' New Book Traces His Life Before His Big Break on Broadway
Andrew Rannells stopped by GOOD MORNING AMERICA to discuss his new book, "Too Much is Not Enough: A Memoir of Fumbling Upward." During the interview, Rannells said that his book focuses on his first seven years in New York City before he got his "first big break" on Broadway in "Hairspray."
"I think that's often the period of time that sort of gets skipped over before you sort of get your first big break," said Rannells. "But pursuing any kind of dream really starts with the first day you say you want to do it. And then there's a lot of time before it happens."
