Rachael F. Goldberg |
Rachael is a native New Yorker and life-long theatre devotee. She saw her first Broadway show, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” at age five, and has been hooked ever since. The summer she was supposed to work on her master’s thesis, she saw roughly ten shows in three months, including two camp-outs for standing room tickets for “Book of Mormon.” Sadly, her acting skills are severely lacking (just ask anyone who had to suffer through her performance as Marty in “Grease”), so she leaves the acting to the professionals and sticks to another type of drama: politics.
