3. How did you find out you had booked the part?

I was at home and my agent called to tell me that a recent job that I’d booked had fallen through and wasn’t going to work out. I was like...”What the heck happened?” She then proceeded to tell me that I was going to be in Aladdin on Broadway instead. She really got me good. After I got off the phone with her, I did a praise lap around my entire apartment! I’d auditioned for this show so many times within the last year.

4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?

Preparing for the show was a whole new experience as a replacement. I had to really be responsible with my knowledge of the show since my rehearsals consisted of only myself and the dance captain. Also, there are tons of props and costume changes in Aladdin. I figured being as prepared as possible, while coming into a cast that had already been established, would make my transition a bit smoother. Like most replacements, I had one put in, so I’m learning something new every night as I make my way through my first week!

5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?

My favorite part about theater is the people I meet. Of course I’m happy to be doing what I love on stage every night, but I’m really looking forward to the relationships I will build as a part of this company. That really seals the deal for me!
