In the wake of all the positive buzz surrounding my current project, Showgirls! the Musical! an acquaintance texted me, “I am so jealous of your overnight success!” What is success anyway? Money? Happiness? Fame? An actor profile on Broadwayworld.com? One hit show? To each his own. The only thing successful people have in common is that they all worked really hard to get where they are.
After a summer training at the Circle in the Square Theater School, a five day a week 9-5 program, I transferred to SUNY Cortland. There, I had six dance classes a week, starred in the musicals, and learned how to do ballet on pointe for their annual production of The Nutcracker.
|Cortland’s dance classes turned this bumbling snowball into a dainty snowflake.|
|I did-did do the can-can for audiences ages 80 and up.|
I have played a monkey, an elf, a goose, a clown, a grandma, a cupcake fairy and a tree.
|Bring it New York. I’m ready. I was born ready.|
