How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I heard I booked my first Broadway show from Craig Burns at Telsey & Co. Casting.  At the time I was just moving to the city and had no agent so the contact they had was me directly and I remember Craig who was in a casting session at the time left the room for a second to tell me I had booked my first Bway Show.

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? I love what’s called a Gypsy Run which some shows do, but it’s usually a final dress rehearsal where other shows are invited to watch. So it’s an audience usually of friends and peers all cheering you on. Really fun moment!!!

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? One of the thing about Broadway that fascinates me is how a show magically transforms from the tech process to the doing it in front of an audience.  It’s always so amazing, it seems like it happens overnight, and then the first audience comes and somehow it always is OK!!

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? My BFF Jessica Rush has insipred me lately, she’s a new mom and I’ve been so amazed at what she’s going through and how much of a rock star she’s been!!

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… There are 3: Beyonce, Oprah and Barack Obama
