We are taking a little trip back to my favorite diner today! This edition of On The Road features the mega-talented Jeremy Morse! Jeremy is an NYU alumni, big Philadelphia sports fan and Washington Heights resident. Jeremy is currently traveling around the country in the first National Tour of the Tony Award-nominated musical, Waitress. While he was in Cincinnati, I set up a photoshoot with my friend and gifted photographer, David Holman. I hope you enjoy getting to know Jeremy, and definitely go see Waitress when it comes to your city!
This post is dedicated to my bestie girl, LJ! March has been QUITE a month for this gorgeous lady. She left her job at Aladdin, is currently in tech rehearsals for a brand new Broadway show, our best friend anniversary is on the 25th, AND TODAY (the 18th) IS HER BIRTHDAY!! LJ lights up every room she walks into and is stunning inside and out. She has been a loyal friend to me over the years and has stuck by my side through all the crazy ups and downs. I am extremely grateful to have her in my life and so excited to see what this next year holds for her! It's hard to capture what a person means to me in a single blog post, so I decided to make a little list highlighting a few of my favorite things about her.
Welcome to the second installment of Broadway Sessions. I love how I get to take you backstage on Broadway with my favorite actors! This interview is very special to me, as it features one of my very first friends at Wicked, Sterling Masters. We first met back in 2015 when I started working at Wicked as a Swing Dresser. Sterling plays the Witch's Mother and is a member of the female ensemble, so I get to play dress up with her in Oz every day! She is an insanely talented dancer, loyal friend, bride to be and a cat mom. I am so excited for you all to get to know her and learn about her eight year journey in Oz!
Today's edition of On The Road features the beautiful actor Lael Van Keuren! Lael was in the original Broadway cast of Sister Act and is currently starring in the national tour of Finding Neverland. While the tour was in Austin, TX., she took my awesome local photographer, Courtney Cope, backstage for a little photoshoot. Obviously, I loved getting a behind the scenes look at her costumes! I hope you enjoy her inspiring interview, and go check out Leal when her delightful show passes through your town!
My love affair with pizza began at a young age. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember! So back in February, my bestie LJ and I had a fun little photoshoot to celebrate National Pizza Day! These pictures inspired me to do some research and compile a list (in no particular order) of some of the best pizza places in Manhattan. I hope this post helps guide you as you eat your way through New York!
This week's On The Road interview features the mega babe Kristine Reese! She has performed on Broadway in Les Miserables, toured with Mama Mia and Pippin and is a Wicked tour alumni, where she played Nessarose. Kristine has since left the Finding Neverland tour, but while it was in Austin, I set up a photoshoot for she and her husband Billy (you can read his On The Road interview here) with my lovely local photographer Courtney Cope. They're my very first couple in this interview series and their pictures are crazy adorable! I hope you enjoy getting to know my gorgeous new friend.
I am extremely excited to introduce you all to a brand new beauty product I have recently become obsessed with, The Bianca Remover! This makeup wipe is tiny but crazily powerful. A single remover pad will take off all or your face makeup AND lipstick. I am especially pumped about this new product because its big sister, The Magic Pads, have been my number one face product for years! The Magic Pads clear up your skin and fight wrinkles...what more does a girl need!? I literally use them every day and always have a container of them in my backpack. While the results speak for themselves, my favorite part about the pads is how they never sting my face!These two products are special to me, not only because they work so well, but also because their creator, Rob Harmon, is part of the Wicked family! Rob is a member of the hair department, and I get to work alongside him every day. I thought it would be fun to interview him about his new product, Broadway and Bianca Del Rio!
Today's On The Road interview features the incredible actor Billy Tighe! At the time of this interview and photoshoot, Billy was touring the country staring in the hit musical Finding Neverland. He has since left the tour, but you can catch him back home in NYC performing in Sweeney Todd. Billy is a Wicked alumni (he played Fiyero)! He made his Broadway debut in the revival of Pippin and performed on the West End in The Book of Mormon. I've loved getting to know him, and I hope you enjoy this interview and gorgeous pictures of Billy and his wife!
