"I play the innocent and ultimately doomed Wendla Bergman alongside a crazy talented and incredible cast of Los Angeles actors," says Pearce. "Most of us met each other at callbacks, and when we all sat down for our first read of the show, it was love at first sight. I, as well as many other castmates, took photos from day one as to not forget a single moment with one another."
"We have truly become a family; living, laughing, loving and learning alongside one another every day, all while performing one of the most beautiful musicals of our generation. I hope you enjoy the photos of us and our process. Truly, Heaven must feel like this!"
