Marisha's Episode: College (or, There's No One way to Broadway) pt.2 (#56)

Where are you from? Goldsboro, NC

Broadway credits: Aladdin, Something Rotten!

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? In a bar. Casey asked me if I was interested in doing Aladdin. I said “Is that a trick question?” I was like of course. I then went to meet and sing for the team on a Thursday and then found out the following Monday I was on Broadway.

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Gypsy of the Year is awesome! I got to arrange a piece for Aladdin last year and it was really fun to collaborate with my cast and with other casts in the community.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? It fascinates me that there is a place for many types of people on Broadway. I didn’t have to change who I was to make it. You can be big, small, comedic, dramatic, quirky or cool and you can still make it on Broadway. Your talent makes room for you.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I am inspired by the whole diversity and human rights movement that is going on right now in the world. People are finally starting to realize that people’s rights are important and valid. It’s a time of change and political awareness.

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Oprah… I guess that’s cliche. But I mean just to have a coffee and talk about life with her would be a trip.

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose.. Beyoncé, only because I want to know exactly what she does in a 24 hour period to be so fierce all the time. And I would love to wear her lace fronts :)

To be successful in this business, it takes… A great attitude, a great work ethic, a drive that won’t quit, and a true inner confidence.

Tell us a secret. I didn’t tap before Aladdin.
