She recently starred Off-Broadway opposite Hayley Mills in Party Face. She played the title role in the world premiere production of Hazel at Drury Lane in Chicago, a classic second banana in The Nutty Professor, premiering in Nashville, directed by Jerry Lewis with a score by Marvin Hamlisch and Rupert Holmes and as Dolly in Goodspeed Opera’s 50th Anniversary production of Hello, Dolly!
