Although I was not actually in the ensemble on the Broadway, I WAS during the show's out of town tryout at La Jolla Playhouse in California. I feel I am in the club. Cool? Cool.

FAVORITE MEMORIES OF PERFORMING THE SHOW

I LOVED doing "Forget About The Boy" - it was a dream come true for me to get to tap with a bunch of Broadway showgirls/idols and getting to do it on the Tonys - splashy moment for sure.  These ladies taught me how to Bevel as well as how to apply false eyelashes. Never. Went .Back. Thanks guys. Dear Sweet Marty Pakladenez and his gorgeous costumes, and Paul Huntley making that nutsy kookoo wig. Love.

SOMETHING I LEARNED WHILE WORKING ON THE SHOW THAT HAS STUCK WITH ME

How to apply false eyelashes (see above), always get someone to build you a tap tile in your dressing room so you can practice, practice, practice, AND if you are in the Minskoff bathrooms (my dressing room) if the posters are not up, patrons of the hotel can see into your shower. Not a lie.

WHAT I AM MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO ABOUT PERFORMING THE SHOW AGAIN.

No question - seeing my friends. And  I know we are going to have big laughter in that room. Show biz is hard as we all fall deeply in love with each other and then we move on to something else- try as we do- we just don't get to see much of each other. And there is so much love there. You become part of a family.
