When I started pursuing musical theatre professionally, I didn’t realize the Everest climb it would be. I knew it would be difficult, but I didn’t know how truly suffocatingly impossible it could feel. The insane scheduling, sleepless nights with early mornings, thousands of dollars invested in headshots, voice lessons, cancelled vacations, dance class, casting director workshops, so many outfits, and in my case... boots. The first time I saw “Kinky Boots”, Nicola walked on stage and I literally said (out loud, to Sophie Oda) - “that’s me!” Brimming with pride, today, once again, and much more contractually I get to exclaim to all of you, “That’s me!”. I’ll be spending my next chapter as Nicola in the North American tour of Kinky Boots!
Thank you for the buckets and buckets of support and love. Thanks for listening to my stories of auditions and callbacks failed and triumphed. Thanks for YOUR stories that brought me hope and strength in my journey... and most importantly, thank you in advance for watching me STRUT all across the country in this GLORIOUS show.
