>THE DOCTORS SING!
WHY DID YOU ALL DECIDE TO DO A MUSICAL EPISODE?
Music was a huge part of the show from the beginning—almost like a third character. [Grey’s creator] Shonda Rhimes said it best: “We’re Gleeing ourselves.” We’re taking music that Grey’s helped put on the map.
THIS WAS A HUGE UNDERTAKING, NO?
It was like a marathon putting it together. Shooting was so different. You have an earpiece in your ear so you can hear the music, and you’re lip synching to yourself.
YOU WON A TONY AWARD, SO CLEARLY YOU CAN SING. HOW DID YOUR COSTARS DO?
Our cast is full of singers. Chyler Leigh’s voice is beautiful, and the emotions come through in a powerful way.
ANY PLANS TO RETURN TO BROADWAY?
I hope, yes. Theater was the first medium to embrace me. I’m open to whatever is meant to be.
