How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I was in a fitting for West Side Story at The MUNY. My agents were calling, but I couldn’t answer. Then an email popped up on my phone with the subject line WICKED BWAY, and I almost fainted. I ran out of my fitting and immediately called my agents. It was incredible.

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? I LOVE Bway Bowling! It’s a great way to see all your friends from other shows and have some friendly competition to spice things up.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The cost that it takes to produce a Broadway show. I had no idea how much money… I knew it was a lot, but DAMN! 

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I’m very inspired by music. Music is and has always been a constant in my life. Currently, I’m “burning holes” through Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Sampha’s Process albums. Music fuels me. 

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be... RuPaul! He’s amazing. I love what he stands for and would love to pick his brain.

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose... Barack Obama. 

To be successful in this business, it takes... hard work and a drive that is unwavering. There’s no one/right way to get to Broadway. Everyone’s path is different. You have to be willing to accept that no matter how steep the hills might be, you will preserve and achieve your goal. 

Tell us a secret: I was once in a boy band called Velocity… please. for the love of god, don’t Google it!
