Andy Mientus shares birthday reflections: “I got through all of last year and I’m here!”

I’m gonna take a second to pat myself on the back because it’s my damn birthday and I am the best in the world at diminishing my own accomplishments. I always feel like I could or should be doing more, yet from last November 10 to this, I moved into a church in upstate New York and worked with my husband to make it our dream home, starred in 11 episodes of an international television series, sang with an orchestra in Japan, played a dream lead role in a musical, wrote and published two BOOKS, debuted and recorded newly discovered Jonathan Larson songs, and started work on my own cabaret solo show. Best of all, I made new friends and beautiful memories with old ones. I also heard “no” a lot, cried a lot, endured a lot of physical pain and was away from my love for a lot of the year. But that stuff was part of it and the highs wouldn’t be as high without the lows and I’d be absolutely insufferable if I always got everything I wanted. I can’t wait to see how all this informs whatever this year holds and I can’t wait to share it with the people who have gotten me this far. I got through all of last year and I’m here! Let’s go, 32.
