During the month of January, I performed as Summer (the band manager), Katie (the bass lead), Shonelle (the backup singer) and Madison (one of the roadies). It's so much fun covering so many roles. When I get to the theatre, I never know who I might be playing! Thanks to everyone who came to see us!
This month, I was featured in The Harlem Times.
Ramon Maben interviewed me about my interests, my music and my work at School of Rock.
Once a year, Broadway swings are recognized for their vital contributions to the business. School of Rock has some of the best swings on Broadway. I am so proud to work alongside them every day. While all Broadway swings must be versatile and have an excellent memory, our show presents us with some unique challenges. There is a tremendous amount of dance choreography for each role as well as blocking that includes moving desks, props and walls -- and an open pit! Swings are ready to go on at a moment's notice. I cover six different roles in the show including Summer (with solo songs) and Katie (the lead bass player). We work together as a company to be sure that the show ALWAYS goes on! Here's a great photo of all of the School of Rock swings.
In addition to my work at School of Rock, I also audition for (and sometimes book) the coolest jobs. Here I am at one of my favorite places ... Avatar Studios ... where I record musical audio books for some of their clients and other projects. I can't wait until the next one.
One of my favorite things to do (when I have some time) is to see other Broadway shows. I think all actors on Broadway enjoy that. In January, Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect, Dear Evan Hansen) came to our show!
It was great to meet him afterward. Thanks Ben!
