FAVORITE BROADWAY SHOW
Gypsy. It was the first show I ever did in community theatre.
St. James Theatre
FIRST BROADWAY SHOW EVER SEEN
The original 42nd Street in 1988. I remember telling my parents during intermission that “I am going to be in this show when I grow up.” Just over ten years later I was in the Broadway revival!
