Getting to Know Your Student Advisor
If you could pick any Broadway star to have coffee with, who would it be and why?
OBVIOUSLY Liza Minnelli, because she is my spirit animal. She has so many stories that I would love to hear!!!
What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?
42nd Street (Revival)! I wasn’t allowed to see a Broadway show until I was 12!!
Favorite Broadway show?
Gypsy because it has the most perfect stand-alone book BUT the songs make it EVEN BETTER. Also, once I sat front row center and PATTI LUPONE spit on me. So blessed by the theatre gods.
What inspires you and why?
Working at BAA is definitely always inspiring. Seeing such dedicated and hard-working young performers is definitely motivational and inspiring! (That is also one of my favorite things about working with young performers!!!)
