VIDEO: Jill Paice Talks MATILDA, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS & More on the Latest Episode of 32 BAR CUT

Adrienne and Jill discuss their time collaborating together on a new project, life during the shutdown, and how Jill's amazing career began.

32 Bar Cut: The Show is a weekly interview series with some of Broadway's biggest stars! Married duo, Adrienne Walker and Austin Cook produce the show from their Brooklyn apartment and connect with performers all across the country to get their candid take on what it's like to be a performer.

On this week's episode of 32 Bar Cut: The Show, we are sitting down with a true Broadway star and leading lady, Jill Paice! You may have seen Jill on Broadway in The 39 Steps or An American in Paris, but our favorite role of Jill's is by far "Miss Honey," in the Broadway smash musical, Matilda! On today's episode, Adrienne and Jill discuss their time collaborating together on a new project, life during the shutdown, and how Jill's amazing career began.

On the West End and on Broadway, Jill originated the role of Laura Fairlie in world premiere of THE WOMAN IN WHITE.

More recently, Jill played Miss Honey in MATILDA on Broadway. More recently, she appeared on Broadway at The Palace Theatre in AN AMERICAN IN PARIS as Milo Davenport, a role she originated in Paris at the Theatre du Chatelet.

Other favorites include Susan in COMPANY, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Betty Haynes in WHITE CHRISTMAS in Detroit, Michigan and at Papermill Playhouse, Maggie in LEND ME A TENOR at Papermill, and ANNE EGERMAN in the Roundabout Theatre Co's gala concert reading of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC.
