In her show she revisits some of her favorite Broadway musical memories from the many shows she's starred in and she takes us on a great journey with her very entertaining and surprising, backstage stories … she also reveals her natural musical instincts in contemporary pop and jazz and even teases us with hints of Broadway roles yet to come."
