Today on our blog, we welcome Frozen's newest ensemblist, Kate Bailey, to Broadway and learn about her journey to the Great White Way:
1. What's your name and hometown?
Kate Bailey from Rochester, MI.
2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?
Ensemble in Frozen.
3. How did you find out you had booked the part?
I was working on another project outside of the city and my agent called with the news that I needed to fly back to NYC the next morning! I went straight from the airport to the St. James Theatre!
4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?
I think when you work so hard for something and you finally make it there, it is hard not to have expectations about how it will unfold. I have to say, the magic of my first show on Broadway exceeded my expectations of what that night would feel like. I had the time of my life, and the love and support I felt was amazing. I know that is so cheesy, but it is true and I feel so lucky.
5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?
I think I am most excited and grateful to be a part of a new Broadway family. I love as actors when we start new projects we extend and grow our community and family each time! How lucky is that!? And with Frozen, not only have they been so wonderful welcoming me into their family, but I have some dear, dear friends from years ago that I get to share my Broadway Debut with and that is very special.
