What are your top five favorite Broadway shows?
- Finding Neverland
- Kinky Boots
The Phantom of the Opera was my first Broadway caliber show. I remember being mesmerized by the chandelier falling, and how that could be so realistic.
Which character in a musical or play do you most identify with and why?
I am not sure but according to the multiple online quizzes I have taken, I seem to most identify with Galinda/Glinda from Wicked!
What does theater and/or Broadway mean to you?
It means culture, and music. I am continually in awe of the actors for their immense talent. It is also something that I love sharing with my husband. You come to a certain point when possessions are not as essential, it is about experiences. And our BroadwaySF season tickets have become that important thing to us.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I am a pretty good baker. As a hobby, I make a new cupcake recipe a week to share with my friends & co-workers.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I love my job as a Social Worker. I work with at risk elderly & dependent adults. It is difficult at times, but the joy comes from both the successes and the tales that the people that I meet have to share.
Laura Ingalls Wilder. She was my childhood obsession.
Is there anything else that we should know about you?
One of my favorite thing about being a theater fan, is sharing the play going experience with my 15 year-old niece. She has attended a few BroadwaySF shows with us and will be coming to a few shows during this upcoming season. I love the thought of planting that theater-loving seed in her brain.
