Favorite showtune(s) of all time: Strangers Like Me from Tarzan, anything from Spring Awakening, The World Will Know from Newsies, various songs from Ragtime, Rent, American Idiot and almost anything by Stephen Sondheim.

First stage kiss: I think it was Annie Fabiano in All Shook Up. mmmmmmm Something you're REALLY bad at: I think I'm really bad at saying 'no' to people. I'm also awful at saving money haha

Most visited websites: Well, aside from stupid Facebook, it'd probably be YouTube, Wikipedia and

Last book you read: If scripts are considered 'books' then Little Women... If I have to pick a regular book, it'd be Little Women. But I fell asleep after page 7, so... fail. Must see TV shows: FRIENDS is my favorite TV show period. Family Guy and Big Bang Theory are a close 2nd. Other than that, The Soup, Jersey Shore and Chelsea Lately are definitely awesome.

Do you have Pre-show rituals or warm-ups? I'm usually 5-10 minutes late to call, so I’m running around like a crazy person with butterflies in my stomach. Aside from that, I fix my costume about a billion times and say my first few lines before goin’ on stage
