On the night of our final Broadway dress rehearsal for Mean Girls, our amazing director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw brought all of the Broadway debuts onstage before the show. None of us knew that this was gonna happen.
My heart was beating so fast! The look of joy on all of our faces is truly a moment I’ll never forget. I get to share my debut with some amazing talent including Tina Fey!
The icing on the cake was looking out and seeing so many people who have helped me through my journey since moving to NYC. Roommates, friends, classmates and audition buddies. The artists who give New York its pulse. The ones that help you with the self tapes, teach you that dance combo, and eat pizza with you when you get cut. The roar of the crowd and the standing ovation that followed was truly breathtaking. I’m so grateful to Casey for giving us that moment and super grateful our amazing SM team quickly pressed record so we could cherish this moment forever!
