Favorite Broadway Bares moment:
Last year I was in the top 20 for fundraising! It was a lot of hard work. But it was an amazing moment to hear Jerry call my name with the other top earners. I felt like part of a very special group.
Why is it important to you to be a part of Broadway Bares?
Especially in the current political climate, I think organizations like Broadway Cares need to be supported and cherished. The work they do for people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses is more important then ever as many people across the country may be struggling without insurance or the ability to work. The Actor’s Fund, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative have both been helpful to myself and friends of mine. I will happily use any talents I possess to support them. And as far as Bares specifically…taking off my clothes for Bares has been exciting, powerful, healing, and a ridiculous amount of fun both times I danced in the show! I cannot wait to do it again.
