"With Seth, you just never know what's gonna happen! I know there is gonna be a lot of laughter, a lot of shenanigans, and a lot of high belting, because even if the song ends low, he'll make me do it again up the octave," Mandy joked. "I'm excited to be able to sing- to sing live with an accompanist who is incredible. I'm excited to this material, which I haven't been able to do in a long time."

What can fans expect from the show? "You can expect to hear 'Breathe from In the Heights, a little 'Defying Gravity,' and some of my absolute favorites. Maybe some Hamilton? We shall see!"
