Tuesday (morning) with Sean

Sean Hayes, the former star of "Will and Grace," and the current star in "Promises, Promises," provided an early-morning wake-up to the nearly 600 attendees of the annual Broadway League Spring Road Conference -- a gathering on industry producers, presenters, agents and affiliated industries.

He found humor in everything from his early speaking time Tuesday morning ("Good evening. In the world of the theater, I'm just going to bed") to the name of the Broadway League itself ("How many teams are there?").

"I kid because I'm tired," he said.

But he turned serious to praise Broadway and "the overwhelming joy it brings audiences."

"If it weren't for people like you, there's be no chance for actors like me," Hayes said.

"Good night." (And then he probably went off to find breakfast.)
