1. What is your name and hometown?
Sarah Quinn Taylor from Wichita, KS.

2. What is your role/track in your Broadway debut?
I was hired as a vacation swing for My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center. Made my debut in an Ensemble/Higgins’ Maid track last week and on to my next ensemble track this week. I actually also found out today I’ll be joining the cast as a permanent swing, so that’s exciting!

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

My husband and I actually have our home base in Pittsburgh, where he is the Production Manager at Pittsburgh CLO. So I flew into New York City on a Sunday night and had only packed a carry-on. I went to the dance call on Monday morning, and five hours later, I found out I’d booked the gig and would be starting rehearsals the next day! Needless to say, my husband had to make a trip to bring me more clothes.

4. What's been the most surprising thing about preparing to perform the show?
Especially in a show like My Fair Lady, the life and energy of the ensemble is so important. There are so many special moments and relationships on and off the stage that people have built into their tracks. It’s fun for me to be able to try and catch as many of those little moments as I can!

5. What are you looking forward to most about your experience on Broadway?
I’m so excited to continue learning from the most generous and insanely talented people in this business. When I’m not onstage, you can bet I’ll be in the wings watching Laura Benanti in all her brilliance. Every day is a masterclass!
