What show recently impressed you?
War Horse — I finally got to see it last September, and I was blown away. It's more than just a play, it's a theatrical experience; a life-changing piece of art! It was epic, like a movie, and I found myself weeping, laughing, and even once shouting out loud from my seat! It's a must-see.

What production are you most excited to see?
Newsies, of course! I got to see opening night at Paper Mill last summer and am thrilled that this show is getting a Broadway run. Plus, I wouldn't miss an opportunity to see and cheer on my pals Jeremy Jordan and Kara Lindsay!

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
I've always wanted to be Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Getting to be any Disney princess would be lovely, haha!

What are your current/upcoming projects?
I have a couple readings this month and other projects in the works but aren't allowed to talk about them yet... You'll find out soon!
