7 years old, Christmas of 1987 - We saw Les Miserables and Into the Woods in a row. Les Mis was technically my first show but I wish my parents had done it the other way around, it would be about 800 times cooler to be able to say Into the Woods.

Ok... maybe just in my dorky world it would be.
Now what would you say if today I started over? Without a thing but this taped together four leaf clover And I'll pretend like everything is already alright And I'll run toward the sun till the castle's out of sight

I know I was 7 when I saw Beauty and the Beast. But I saw a production of Peter Pan before that and nobody in my family can remember if it was on Broadway or on a tour of some kind. So I just say Beauty in the Beast is my first Broadway show.

I was 14. The show was SEESAW with Michele Lee, John Gavin and a very youthful Tommy Tune! At the Uris (now the Gershwin) Theatre. I made my parents take me from the Boston Area to NYC just to see a Broadway show! They were great--they took me!!

Lost my virginity at 17 at THE LION KING.

Theater snobs should note that my theater obsession was cemented by seeing, soon afterwards, the film adaptation of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.

That's right: I want to be a part of theater because of both Disney, the corporate whore of the theater world, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, the Puccini-stealing hack... of the theater world.

HA!

That's a really weird way of putting it, but when I was five my parents took me to see Beauty and the Beast and I cried through the whole thing because I was so scared. So I'm not gonna count that. But, on March 4, 2005, I went to see Little Women, and, not to sound dramatic, I walked out of that theatre a completely different person. And Sutton Foster just dazzled me-still my favorite Broadway actress!
I know you. I know you. I know you.
