BEFRIEND THE BLONDE:
FOLLOW THE ADVENTURE ON INSTAGRAM
I am super excited to introduce you to my dear friend, Tia Altinay, in the newest edition of On The Road! Tia has performed on Broadway in Aladdin, Mary Poppins and A Christmas Story. Prior to her Broadway debut, she toured with Mama Mia!, High School Musical and Bombay Dreams. Tia is currently touring the country with Hamilton as a member of the female ensemble. She also understudies Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds! I hope you enjoy this interview with my wonderful friend, and if the Hamilton Philip tour passes through your city, please bring her a treat for me!
Well folks, my 2019 New Year blog post is EXTREMELY late. Oops! I was going through old notes on my phone and found one of the lists of goals I made for 2019 and thought I’d share. Every January I like to sit down and write a list of goals I’d like to achieve over the next twelve months. (I also wrote out a list of things I would like to manifest in my life, but that’s a different blog post!) So even though it’s basically halfway through the year, I thought I would carry on the tradition I started last year and share some of my goals with you!
I am absolutely thrilled to bring back the Broadway Sessions series and introduce you to one of my favorite Ozians, Lauren Sambataro! This dynamic, multi-talented woman continually inspires me to be the best I can be. I am blessed to know her and am pumped for you to read this interview!
This blog post is super exciting because I'm taking you on a little tour of my best friend's new apartment! (Click here for a tour of my current home.) Along with being my bestie, LJ Wright is a Broadway dresser, Bravo TV enthusiast and proud dog mom. (Click here to learn more about her life as a dresser and click here to read the post I wrote for her birthday last year.) I love going over to her apartment because it's so easy to walk over there from work AND who doesn't love cuddling with an adorable dog!? So I hope you enjoy checking out her new space, and let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more Broadway home tours!
Today’s edition of On The Road features the incredibly talented Austin Scott! Austin grew up in Benicia, California, and is a San Francisco State University alum. You might recognize him from his time on the Hamilton national tour in which he played the title role of Alexander Hamilton. While Austin was in Washington, D.C., with the tour back in August, he met up with my friend Karl Magnuson, and they got some epic shots of him around the Capital! I’m so excited for you to meet my new friend. Make sure to check him out on Instagram AND on Broadway where he is currently starring as Hamilton!
I am so excited to share something special with you all today! Earlier this week after our shows ended, Rob Harmon and I gathered a group of our Broadway friends in Times Square to film a music video remake of the hit Maggie Rogers song “Light On”. The world feels a little dark right now so we wanted to share some light and joy - from the brightest part of New York City! I hope this video makes you as happy as it has made us!
This edition of On The Road features the handsome and talented Chaundre Hall-Broomfield! Dre is a Newburgh, NY, native and earned a BFA in acting from Purchase College. He’s currently traveling around the country with Hamilton's Angelica tour! Dre plays the roles of Hercules Mulligan and James Madison, so when his company was in Washington, D.C., I absolutely had to get a picture of him next to the Madison statue in the Library of Congress! I love how Dre's personality shines through all of these images. I hope you enjoy getting to know my new friend as much as I have!
