How did you hear you'd booked your first show? I was freelancing with my agents, and my first audition in the city was for On the Town. I had a crazy fun, long audition for George Wolfe. I had some summer work lined up back in Indiana, but for some reason, I thought to myself that I was gonna book On the Town. I called Indiana and turned down the job even though my audition for George was just an initial one. After a LONG 3 weeks of no info, I got a callback for On the Town. After the callback, my agents called me at home to tell me I had booked the show!! Needless to say, I was over the moon! So my first audition in the city led to my first show and my Equity card!
What is your favorite event in the Broadway Community? Of course I love the Tonys.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you lately? Marianne Williamson's talks every Tuesday night here in NYC. She is extraordinary.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be... Meryl Streep. We share a birthday!
To be successful in this business, it takes... well, a bunch of things. Versatility has been key in my career. Craft, discipline, technique, observation, focus, good relationships with the creatives, fellow actors and crew members. Gaining a reputation for being easy to work with, kind and dependable.
