Backstage Sessions: Ashley Timm

Backstage Sessions: Ashley Timm

I am super excited to share another Backstage Sessions interview with all of you featuring one of my favorite Broadway dresser babes, Ashley Timm! I thought December was an appropriate month to post this interview, because the classic show Ashley is currently working on, Cats, closes at the end of the month. We met years ago through my bestie LJ and really bonded when she started working with me as a swing dresser at the musical Aladdin. I adore Ashley because she is hilarious, incredibly kind, inspires me to live my best life and gives the best bear hugs. I hope you all enjoy Ashley's interview and taking a little peek backstage at the Neil Simon Theatre!

I am super pumped about this installment of Backstage Sessions featuring my dear friend Bonnie! We first met backstage at Aladdin in 2015 when I started working there at a swing dresser. She has been a faithful friend through my many emotional highs and lows. The summer LJ and I spent dressing the Female Ensemble along side her in the Bunker of Love at the New Amsterdam Theatre was one of the best times of my life. Bonnie inspires me because of how passionate she is about her job and how deeply she loves others. She happily took me on the coolest backstage tour at Anastasia and completely blew her interview questions out of the water. This post is honestly my favorite post to date and I just know you guys are all going to love her!!

I am thrilled to officially introduce you to my friend Sarah! I first met this sparkling little nugget backstage at Aladdin in February 2015 when she started as a swing dresser. She was a bit shy at first, but we eventually fell in love.I admire Sarah for her loyalty, patience, diligence, encouraging spirit and strong work ethic. She is an extremely valuable member of our girl squad, and not just because she's always willing to take thousands of pictures of LJ and I. So I hope you enjoy this little peek into Sarah’s world backstage!

Backstage Sessions: LJ Wright

Backstage Sessions: LJ Wright

So if you are just now tuning in to my life, I'd like you to introduce you to my fabulous best friend LJ! We met in Alabama way back in 2009 when I transferred to Samford University and became a theater major. We were always friendly but didn't become BFFs until she joined me working at Aladdin in February 2016. It is always a struggle not getting extremely sentimental when talking or writing about LJ so I'm going to save all my corny stories for a separate Team Teale post all about her. For now, I want to focus on her Broadway story. We had very different journeys to Broadway but have both always been passionate about the arts, and I'm pumped for you to get to know her better today.
