Where are you from? Born and raised in New York City - Roosevelt Island, to be precise
Broadway Credits: Avenue Q
How did you hear you booked your first Broadway Show? I was at home at my mom’s apartment when I got the call. I had already been on the National Tour of Avenue Q, and my agent called to let me know there was an offer to bring me in to the Broadway company. I remember a prevailing sense of relief, if that makes sense. Like phew, I’m doing the right thing.
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? BC/EFA’s Gypsy of the Year and the Easter Bonnet. I’ve helped steer Avenue Q’s efforts and written some of our skits. This past spring we actually won for Best Presentation, poking fun at The Lion King.
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? Fog machines. Bubble machines. Anything, other than lights, operated by a light board.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I went to Hillary Clinton’s campaign kick-off at Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island in June. I am hesitant to climb on board with any politician, but she really convinced me that she is running for the benefit of the average American.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Jon Stewart.
If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… My niece Lana. She’s three months old. And very well-loved.
To be successful in this business, it takes… Endurance. No one knows the secret, right? You just have to keep chugging.
Tell us a secret. She’s pregnant!!!!
