The first preview of [title of show] on Broadway

 



"Is that creepy that I'm putting a show I was in on the list? It has less to do with me and more to do with what was shared on that particular night. I  have never, in my life, either as a performer or as an audience member, experienced anything like it. After we sang 'Nine People's Favorite Thing,' the applause just wouldn't stop. It. Wouldn't. Stop. I remember feeling like we were taking in the energy from every single person in that house. Like we became everything that everyone in that house wanted to be, whatever it was. We were living the dream for everyone. While we were succeeding, they were succeeding. It was this crazy energy circle that just kept going and going and going. We were little batteries that the audience was charging. I remember standing there, and tears rolled down my face. I was totally overwhelmed and proud to have made something that connected with people that night."
