"I was both relieved and happy today. I got the news this morning just following along online. My first phone call was to Joe Machota - one of my agents at CAA and one of my closest friends. It was nice to immediately share it with a great friend and an agent all at once! I then spent the day in auditions for LEAP OF FAITH and then I had a lunch meeting for another show that I'm working on - FINDING NEVERLAND. It's so great to get that recognition and it's great to be working on other projects at the same time.
I'm also really looking forward to coming back next season with HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING and working with Daniel Radcliffe who is just great and I get to work again with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron also.
The PROMISES, PROMISES experience has been great, the actors are really a terrific company who brought a lot to the table and to the rehearsal room and to work with Neil Simon and Hal David and Burt Bacharach is just a dream come true. I got my Equity Card performing in PROMISES, PROMISES…many years ago. It's been great to revisit it and I'm so happy that the audiences are loving it. When you sit in the theatre, you can just really hear people laugh and applaud and with Kristin and Sean leading the cast - it's great!"
