Ryann's Episode: Readings and Workshops (#29)

Where are you from? Atlanta, GA

Broadway credits: If/Then and Bring It On

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? Well, I started with Bring It On from the very first reading (about 2 years before the show made it to Broadway). So I was asked to audition for the reading after Telsey saw me singing at a benefit for an organization near and dear to my heart: the Broadway Dreams Foundation. During a lot of the process, I was still in school at NYU (CAP21) so in between classes I saw that I was getting a phone call from Rachel Hoffman and when I answered, it was Rachel and Annette Tanner (my mentor and Executive Director of the aforementioned BDF). I will never forget hearing the 2 of them give me the good news that I booked the role I would go on to originate in Bring It On on Broadway!

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? I REALLY love Broadway Bowling and Broadway Softball because I am super competitive. And my other answer  which is cliche (but truthful!) is The Tony Awards. It is an event that will always make giddy, no matter what. A true celebration of the work we created as a community. 

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? That as performers, we have the ability to change something as minute as a bad mood or as tremendous as a life.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? The World Cup! There are few things more inspiring than a nation coming together to support their team. It’s as if, in those moments, nothing else matters except that we support each other for one common goal…pun intended. Unity on such a large scale inspires me. 

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Jimmy Fallon

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose…Jessie J

To be successful in this business, it takes… Kindness, drive, and networking skills. It is all about who you know and staying current in this business, so self marketing is KEY.
