First stage kiss: Alan Campbell in Sunset Boulevard (J/K, but I sure loved it!)
Favorite post-show meal: I'm a big fan of Kodama. Yummy yum, sweet potato tempura role!
How you got your Equity card: Playing Eva in Evita at The North Carolina Theatre when I was 20.
Worst flubbed line: Well, there are a few that my Vanities cohorts will never let me live down. Like in one scene I was supposed to say "Don't worry Kathy, no matter what happens, we three have each other"...and for some reason I couldn't memorize that cause we were changing so much... so for about a week I kept saying, "as long as we're together, we'll never be apart." They would literally laugh in my face.
Worst costume ever: I've always been really lucky in the costume department!
Pets' names: No pets. Alan keeps telling our daughter that he is allergic to dogs...but I imagine he will magically be cured of that allergy when she turns seven.
Favorite junk food: Parrano Cheese and Oyster Bay Sauvingon Blanc.
Who would play you in the movie? Reese Witherspoon
Were you a cheerleader in high school? Oh no, not a cheerleader. I was a show choir geek. We were national champions, we took it very seriously! I hope the videos don't end up on youTube. Actually, I would think it is kind of funny! I had the blondest, most enormous hair on the planet!
