BroadwayWorld Detroit: How do you describe Nick Jr. Live! "Move to the Music"?

Jenia Head: It's an adventure-filled Nick Jr. party! Friends from Paw Patrol, Bubble Guppies, Top Wing, Dora the Explorer, Shimmer and Shine and many more join together and put on an interactive show!

Can you describe your character of Molly from Bubble Guppies for our readers?

Molly is a natural born, kind-hearted leader with swimsational star power!

What is the best part of playing Molly?

The fact that she's such a rockstar and such a great friend!

A fan of the show, Maddie DeStefanis, would like to know if you got a bubble puppy in real life, what would you name and why?

Hi Maddie! Awesome question! If I had a Bubble Puppy of my own, the name I would settle on would be Bubbles because of how cute it sounds!

Do you have a favorite line in the show every night?

My favorite line from the show is "If you've got a song to sing, you should sing it. If it comes from you, we're all going to love it." It warms my heart every time.

Can you share a special moment that has happened during the show for you?

It was actually while I was still in the rehearsal process and I got the opportunity to watch the previous cast perform the show in Toronto. I was sitting towards the back where everyone would enter. A family entered after the show had started and behind me I heard an eruption of absolute cuteness and joy! A kid just couldn't contain his excitement and it was absolutely adorable!

Describe the show in five words.

Adventure! Pawsome! Finntastic! Party! Friendship!

What is it like for you as a Detroit native performer to come back and perform on the Fox Theatre stage?

Feels like home. It's not my first time performing on the Fox stage so I can't wait to bring Nick Jr. Live! to my world!

Why should Detroit audience bring their children to see this special show?

To create life long memories and to have fun! It's one thing watching your favorite characters on your iPads or TV, it's another thing to join the fun and see your favorite Nick Jr. friends live on stage!
