Coombs and Samantha Tuozzolo are honored to share virtual space with the iconic Fredi Walker-Browne who shares how originating the role of Joanne Jefferson in RENT impacted her 30+ year career, how she transitioned into directing and why just 'showing up' is honestly half the battle most of the time.
