What is the first Broadway show you ever saw?

The Little Mermaid when I visited NYC for the first time on a high school choir trip.

What is your most unique pre-show ritual?

I don't really have a lot of pre-show rituals, but I do take a moment before I go on stage to breathe, center myself, check in with my body and mind, and then go rock out and have a party!

What is your most memorable "the show must go on" moment?

One time I was downstage center, playing fiddle in a show and my bow exploded. Literally, all of the bow hairs detached and went flying everywhere. It was terrifying and exhilarating at the same time hahaha. I had the rest of the show to do, so luckily there was a prop bow on the set that I used for the rest of it. Ironically, in all of my years of playing, that has only happened to me twice, BOTH times on stage during a show.

What is the one role you want to play before you die?

Leo Frank - please please please someone produce a revival (but in 10 years so I can play him)

Who is your Broadway crush?

Heather Headley!! SHE IS MY QUEEN! HEATHER, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
