Juliana Asbill

Hi, all! I’m an assistant teacher from Madison, Mississippi in a first grade class and am kept on my toes daily! I also work at a vet clinic and the barn where my horse lives, so I'm always on the go, but seeing musicals is a way I can quiet my mind and fill my cup for a few hours amidst my constantly crazy schedule. I saw my first show, Wicked, at the Kennedy Center in 2011 and I was hooked. Since then, I've been privileged enough to see over 45 different shows and meet some amazing members of the theatrical community. I just love any time I can spend in a theatre and I'm so grateful to get to be a part of the theatre community in this way! Outside of my interest in Broadway, I love spending time with my pets (a horse named Edward, a cat named Peaches, and a dog named Stitch), Stitch (hence my pup's name), crafting, and reading. Happy to be in this space!

First Show:

Wicked

Favorite Show:

Too many! Wicked will always be a sentimental one for me, though. Beetlejuice takes close second for similar reasons. The impact they’ve had on my life will never be erased or forgotten. As for the rest…I can’t possibly choose! 🙈

Just how far would you take sisterly devotion? Would you be willing to take years in a loveless marriage, with a man who believes that the way to get a woman to do whatever he wants her to is to beat her, after already spending years being assaulted by your own father?
