Favorite theater experience:
When I was in New York, I went to go see Hair. During the final number, audience members are invited on stage to sing with the cast. As I was on stage, thinking to myself that I had made it to the Broadway Stage… I look out into the audience and see my biggest childhood celebrity crush sitting in the audience. When the song was over, I ran off of the stage, introduced myself and gave him a hug. In one night, two of my dreams came true, I performed on the Broadway stage and I met my celebrity crush!
