Getting to Know Your Student Advisor
What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?
I believe it was Purlie the Musical starring Cleavon Little and Melba Moore (Wikipedia it!!!)
If you could pick any Broadway star to have coffee with, who would it be and why?
Although deceased, I would love to sit down for a chat over a Mocha Latte with Gregory Hines at ‘Heaven’s Cafe’. Known for his mastery of tap, but also for being an extraordinary multi talented artist with a beautiful spirit with a kind heart. The world needs more individuals like Gregory Hines!!
If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
If I were to choose the animal I was most like, it would be the Emperor Penguin. A social animal who endures tremendous journeys to sustain Life! But really, its because I have “HAPPY FEET”!!!
