Guess what? The week after I got back from doing the incredible masterpiece by Gershwin this summer I booked a new musical comedy called, “Disenchanted”!!! I begin rehearsals in a few weeks and couldn’t be more excited to join the Princess Posse and play “The Princess who Kissed the Frog”! Doesn’t that sound funny already? Watch out! We will be making our mark Off-Broadway this fall!
