Broadway credits: Wicked and Rock of Ages
How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I was performing in the Los Angeles company of Wicked, and my agent from the NY office called and said they wanted to offer me a contract on Broadway! I had only lived in Los Angeles up until that point, so it was both magical and terrifying.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The rehearsal to stage process. Seeing how a show goes from vision to reality is just incredible.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I recently got certified in teaching yoga, so there has been all kinds of inspiration surrounding me lately in learning a new skill.

To be successful in this business, it takes… Courage.
Tell us a secret. Growing up I didn’t really know about Broadway or musical theater, period. So when I went to my first audition for Wicked in Los Angeles, I borrowed a friend’s sheet music of “All That Jazz” and danced along with the vocals…"I’m gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down…" Yep.
