Oh my god oh my god oh my god. It's finally here.
I'm off to Edinburgh to perform in one of my bucket list shows, "Rent."
See you in 6 weeks! If I return, that is.
Talk about a fast turn around. Clinton ended its run yesterday and I'm launching into rehearsals for Rent this week. No rest for the wicked...ly awesome!!! Yes? No? Meh.
Rent is definitely a bucket list show for me and this cast. is. ridiculous. I can't wait for all of us to be belting in each others faces for the next two months.
Plus, this will be my first show abroad AND Anthony Rapp is part of the team. So, basically, 14-year-old me is peeing her pants right now.
What a wonderful experience it was to be a part of Clinton The Musical. It was my first show at New World Stages and my first time as a Swing! I learned a ton and was able to work with some truly incredible folks. Here's me and the cast (minus the incomparable Judy Gold, who wasn't able to be with us the final week)...
Oh goody. I love me some Broadway Sessions and Ben D kindly asked the cast of Clinton to come and perform! I think I'll sing something funny and loud. Yes, that's what I'll do. Come on out, June 11th!
Well, this was fun! My friends over at Damn Family invited me to be a part of this hilarious sketch produced by College Humor. Thanks, friends!
Well, I'm getting back into the swing of things over at UCB. I've knocked some sketch classes out of the way and I'm starting to improv again. Listen, I can belt a song to high heaven in front of hundreds of folks no problem. But there's something about improv class that scares the crap out of me. AND I LIKE IT!
Congrats to this fabulous team for such a hilarious and successful opening night! It's been a blast watching these folks work. I'm very grateful to be a part of the process. Go, Hil, go!
Tonight was our first preview. We did it! Can't wait to see how the show evolves during previews and up til opening. We have a fun little skit for you folks, that's for sure.
