What is your job on this show?
When did you know you wanted to work in the theater, and why?
As far back as I can remember. My parents had tickets to FLOWER DRUM SONG and the baby sitter for my baby brother pooped out. I became my Mom's date. I was five and I was hooked!
Why do you do theater (as opposed to film, or TV, or something not in the entertainment field)?
There is nothing like the Theatre. It's in my blood. I still get goosebumps before I go on and I'm no kid. If I lose that feeling, then it's time to move on.
How did you meet your fellow artists/collaborators on this show?
I went to the open call for Musicals Tonight! in 2005 and my love affair with this company is one of the great blessings in my life.
Who are your heroes?
Katharine Hepburn and Debbie Reynolds are my greatest inspirations. Miss Hepburn for her individuality and great magnetism. And Miss Reynolds for always making me smile!
