1. What was the first show you saw on Broadway?
2. When did you know you wanted to perform for a living?
I knew I wanted to be an actor around the end of my junior year of high school. It’d become my favorite thing and I felt like I was decent at it. I was still torn between acting and law through senior year, when I finally decided to attend Webster University for Musical Theatre.
3. What is the biggest challenge performing in this show?
The biggest challenge I face while performing this show is the travel. Each city presents its own set of variables, whether it be allergens or dry weather, and the instrument must adjust. This means the show can feel different every week.
4. What advice do you have for aspiring performers?
My advice for aspiring performers... always a tricky question! Everyone’s journey is so different. I think my number one advice is to learn as much as you can and never stop learning! Talent is great, but everyone is talented at something. Skill brings longevity, flexibility, and gives you confidence as you approach different types of work! Also, have fun! It’s just a play.
5. What are you most looking forward to seeing in St. Louis?
I’m looking forward to visiting the city museum and I hope to see the new stage at The Muny, if it’s complete. I’m also very excited to visit the great restaurants in the central west end!
