One of my favorite memories of the show has to be getting to know all of the wonderful people in the cast. It really was like a family. I really loved being part of the Broadway community and seeing how the audience loved the show every single performance along with connecting onstage with cast members in each number. I still can hear the sound of the audience when they heard Sutton sing "Gimme, Gimme" for the first time. I also remember one time the night before the Thanksgiving parade when a large troop of cheerleaders was rehearsing in the Marriott above the theatre and made the entire balcony shake. We were onstage watching people evacuate the mezzanine while we were dancing.
I was part of the show from the final dance workshop before going out of town to La Jolla until we closed on Broadway. It was wonderful to see the entire process: how a show changes, how it opens, how it holds up after running awhile, the parade, the Today Show, and how it comes to a close..
What are you most looking forward to about performing the show again has to be reconnecting with the friends I made in the show. It was filled with many wonderful performers and just great people. I am looking forward to talking to these old friends, catching up, and learning all about their lives now.
