My main objective is to bring a certain light to the stories of shows in my area. I love the Idaho area having lived here and done theatre here for more than half of my life. Though theatre has always been a love of mine and I look forward to a career in it. I realized recently I prefer writing about theatre. Doing something like this with Broadwayworld is beyond all my wildest dreams.

In January I had the absolute pleasure of seeing The King and I at the Morrison Center in Boise Idaho. I got to see Akina Kitazawa perform in the role of Eliza (to those who haven't seen the show she is in the second half of the show in the musical number ' The Small House of Uncle Thomas'). I got to talk to her about things from The King and I to dream roles within theatre. Her performance was absolutely one of the best parts of the show, filled with so much passion and beauty. The entire audience couldn't keep their eyes off of what was happening the entire number. Shes now in a performance with 'Theatre Under the Stars' performing 'Jerome Robbins' Broadway' which Akina will talk about throughout the interview. You can read that down below! :)BWW Review: THE KING AND I at Morrison Center January 27, 2019
The national tour cast of 'The King and I' took a stop in Boise as part of the 'Broadway In Boise' season. Running January 25th through the 27th. The cast put on an electrifying performance, which won't be forgotten anytime soon by those who saw it. There was so much in this production which stood out. From the actors and actresses on the stage to the choreography. Wonderful, vibrant and magnificent are three words which could be used to describe this production.BWW Review: WITH LOVE AND A MAJOR ORGAN at Boise Contemporary Theatre December 16, 2018
