How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I closed a show Off-Broadway on a Sunday. The next day had an audition for Miss Saigon as the 2nd replacement. I had made it all the way down to the end initially, but didn’t get it. Monday, I went to the Broadway Theatre, sang onstage, went home and took a nap.  When I woke up, my answering machine was beeping. I called my agent, and they told me I booked it and started the next day.  

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Gypsy of the Year

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? I know what it takes to do eight shows a week, but I’m always fascinated by sitting on the other side of the curtain and how I’m able to have the same feeling I had when I saw my first show.  

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Writing. And teaching.  

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Michelle Obama.

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Leontyne Price.

To be successful in this business, it takes… talent, strong work ethic, and a great reputation.

Tell us a secret. I love romance novels.
