HELLO, GORGEOUS.
I'M MAKING MY BROADWAY DEBUT!

I am so freaking excited to begin previews tonight for my Broadway debut in the long-awaited revival of Funny Girl. Beanie Feldstein, the most kind-hearted woman, is leading the way and I could not be more proud. With direction by Michael Mayer and choreography by Ellenore Scott and tap choreography by Ayodele Casel, we are gonna stop people in their tracks. And holy crap... Jane Lynch, Ramin Karimloo, and Jared Grimes!? Forget it.  Thrilled to be swinging for the first time, so keep an eye out on my Instagram for updates on my performance schedule.

COME TO

HOLIDAY INN!

Do you know that Irving Berlin's song, "White Christmas," originated in the movie Holiday Inn, not White Christmas? Well it's true. And I'm very excited to be heading back to The 5th Avenue Theatre  for the first staging of Holiday Inn since its Broadway run.

David Armstrong and James Rocco, will be co-directing with Rocco taking over the choreography. Plus we've got the super sweet and super legendary, Lorna Luft, knocking out some amazing comedy. Come get in the festive spirit with us.

THE NOTEWORTY LIFE OF
HOWARD BARNES

Cannot contain my excitement to create another world-premier musical! The Noteworthy Life Of Howard Barnes is a kooky fun comedy by the kooky fun writing team, Michael Kooman and Chris Dimond. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of laughs happening throughout the rehearsal process. Led by Brandon Ivie and with choreography by Emmy-nominated Al Blackstone, this is gonna be one hell of a ride.
