"Music that Makes Me Dance"
"I Think It's Going to Rain Today"
|Special skills:||I am an award-winning bowler.|
|First Broadway show you ever saw:|| On my first trip to NY my parents let my sister and me see Miss Saigon by ourselves. I was 14. |
I knew I wanted to do exactly what those girls were doing… maybe not the pole dancing, but everything else. Okay, MAYBE the pole dancing.
|Did you have any particular mentors or inspirations when first starting out?||I've always loved Carol Burnett and Joanna Gleason.|
|Some favorite modern musicals:||I saw Movin' Out 8 times from the front row.|
|Some favorite classic musicals:||She Loves Me, Annie Get Your Gun|
|Broadway or screen stars of the past you would most have loved to perform with:||I always used to fantasize about being on "The Carol Burnett Show." What an incredible cast.|
|The one performance – attended - that you will never forget:||While in college I performed at the opening of a new theatre in Dayton, Ohio, and also performing was Ray Charles (obviously). I snuck into the orchestra pit and watched him sing "Georgia" from the best seat in the house.|
|Music that makes you cry, any genre:||Pretty much anything Eva Cassidy sings|

|Performer you would drop everything to go see:||I could not be more serious when I say the first person that comes to my mind is Eminem.|

|First stage kiss:|| I could make the entire Broadway community jealous by listing all the men and women I've kissed during various shows and readings. |
I'd like to think it's karmic payback for my actual first stage kiss when I was 14, kissing a 45-year-old.
