On Twitter Watch, Ioan Gruffudd wrote 'Working with the lovely and talented @LILLACRAWFORD today! #IntoTheWoods @ForeverABC Crawford moved from Los Angeles to New York City where she made her Broadway debut in 2011 as Debbie in the closing cast of the musical Billy Elliot. She previously auditioned for the role while she had been on vacation in New York City and was not planning on auditioning. Later, after a nationwide search, she won the title role in James Lapine's 2012 revival of the Tony-winning musical Annie at the age of 11 after having previously been in a community theatre production of the same show, of which she played Bert Healy. She competed against over 5,000 other girls auditioning to play Annie over a span of nine months.[4] After her initial audition in New York she had five or six callbacks, the final one with a dozen girls. While performing in Annie, she filmed the Broadway.com video blog 'Simply Red' for the show, which earned her a broadway.com title of 'most clicked stars of 2013'.[5] She has also played 'The Little Girl' in Ragtime at Avery Fisher Hall, alongside Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, and many others. Additionally, Crawford played Little Katie in a workshop production of Home the Musical by Scott Alan in New York City. Crawford has also appeared in a workshop of Melissa Arctic and has performed in 14 shows at Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles.[6] Crawford has also held many musical theater workshops for children in NYC that focus on audition techniques and stage presence. She has partnered with her vocal coach Philip Pelkington and the performing company A Class Act to hold these workshops. She also held a workshop at the Marymount School of New York where she mentored the middle school's cast of Into the Woods Junior. Crawford made her feature-film debut playing Little Red Riding Hood in the Disney film adaption of the musical Into the Woods, a role that was originally rumored to have been given to Sophia Grace Brownlee.[7] The film was released on December 25, 2014, at the Ziegfeld Theater where Crawford was dressed in an Oscar De La Renta dress.[8]' (more...)
