Full given name: Julie Karen White
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Audition song: I have not auditioned for a musical in donkey years, but when I did, I sang "Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long."
Special skills: I can clean a catfish.
First Broadway show ever saw: Company when I was ten years old. My grandparents took me, and while it was probably inappropriate for a ten-year-old, I loved it.
If you could go back in time and catch any Broadway show, what would it be? I guess I would have loved to see Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl.
Current show you have been recommending to friends: I loved Spring Awakening. Off-Broadway: I have a list of things I want to see.
Favorite showtune: "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" from Oklahoma! Just start singing it when you wake up, and your day will be better.
MAC or PC? MacBook Pro. It's new-ish and so cool.
Most played song on your iPod: Have no iPod — insane right? — but checked most played on iTunes and see Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" is #1 right now.
One CD you couldn't live without: At the moment Christina [Aguilera]'s "Back to Basics" makes me pretty happy.
Must-see TV show: "Lost," any golf tourney that Tiger Woods is playing in, and Dallas Cowboy football games.
Last good movie you saw: "The Namesake," "Jackass Number Two." Go rent "Flags of Our Fathers" immediately. It is amazing.
Favorite board/card game: Scrabble, I'm really good at it.
Performer you would drop everything to go see: Britney Spears
Pop culture guilty pleasure: Britney Spears
First stage kiss: Gee, I guess in high school when I played Annie in Annie Get Your Gun. I kissed Frank Butler at the end, didn't I?
Favorite pre-/post-show meal: I love a meat and potatoes kinda feed after the show. I try not to eat much before or else you feel like you are lugging around an anvil up there!
How you got your Equity card: Got my Equity card thanks to Stephen Schwartz and Joseph Stein casting me in a Chicago production of The Baker's Wife. I was 21 years old. Thank you guys!
Worst stage mishap: My worst mishap was probably the most recent. I showed up at Little Dog at 2:20 on a Sunday when the show was scheduled to start at 2! I thought it was at 3! And had been leisurely shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond, sans phone(!) killing time before my 3 o'clock matinee. Whoops.
Who have you played on "Law & Order"? Which edition? I am sort of the "Where's Waldo?" of the original "Law & Order." I have played two different witnesses that were sort of no help at all. Once, George Dzundza questioned me, once Paul Sorvino. More recently I have played neurosurgeon Dr. Anne Morella four times on "SVU." Whenever anyone has a catastropic head injury, I am the go-to gal that comes on and explains it.
Worst costume ever: Mine have all been pretty good, although the bra and thong that I appeared in (briefly) in Theresa Rebeck's Bad Dates did sort of give me pause.
Cats or dogs? Little dogs...specifically my little pomeranian Lulu. I'm hoping to get a chicken soon, too. I've always wanted a couple of little hen.
Favorite cereal: Skinner's Raisin Bran
Worst job you ever had: I was one of those people who sprays perfume on you at Bloomingdale's. Talk about giving yourself a headache!
