Why see West Side Story? How is the story relevant today?  West Side Story is, in my very unyielding opinion, the greatest musical of all time!

Why see West Side Story? How is the story relevant today? Much like the story that WSS is based on, it is a classic tale that stands the test of time. There is something for everyone in this show – fights, dancing, music, passion, anger, love, understanding, compassion, fear, and the list goes on. Everyone can relate to this story somehow, and it will probably always be that way.

Why see West Side Story? How is the story relevant today?  Where there is a difference of opinion, there is potential to destroy. We might not go so far as to kill each other (as the show portrays) but we often aim to critically injure- careers, reputations, home life, self esteem, etc. After seeing this show, I hope people leave the theatre reflecting on where their opinions clash with others, perhaps politically, spiritually, ethically, or elsewhere. I hope that in their reflection they find that having different points of view is never worth destroying another person- in any way.

Education: BA in Theatre Arts: Music Theatre, and a minor in Dance

Season: Fall

Holiday: Halloween

Pastime: Writing, drawing, and watching TV with my two cats

Boxers or Briefs? Neither 😉

Sweet or Sour? Sweet
Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt? Ice Cream

Spring or Fall? Fall; I already love my birthday season

Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset; I’m a night owl

Beach or Pool? I’d say pool only because I haven’t had much experience with beaches; however, I would love to go scuba diving

Sharks or Jets? JETS!!

ANSWER ME THIS…

Do you feel pretty? Oh, so pretty!

When life hands you lemons? Make lemonade.

You’re stranded on a deserted island… What two items do you bring? ​An ​All-Purpose knife and chap-stick (I hate when my lips get chapped).

How long have you been performing? Actor: 7 yrs; Dancer: 19 yrs

What’s your favorite role that you’ve played?
Beth in ‘Beth’; it was an adaption of Shakespeare’s Scottish Play​,​ and I played the title role. It was very bloody, bold, and resolute.

What’s your dream role to be cast? The Narrator from ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’

Who is your hero? Biggest inspiration? My parents equally share the hero title because, well, they’re my parents; I’d say my biggest inspiration ​s​have been my superheroines, specifically Wonder Woman because she reminds me to embrace my height (we both stand 6 ft. tall in heels). It’s harder to get work as a tall dancer when there are very few tall male dancers in the metro area, but it hasn’t slowed me down yet!

Where are you in 10 years? Working as a full-time Performing Artist and Yoga Instructor, living in my dream townhouse with my hubby and our four fur-babies (two cats and two dogs).

Why see West Side Story? How is the story relevant today? ‘West Side Story’ is one of the most classic shows you ​will see in your lifetime​, and it is as relevant ​today ​as Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’. I​t is​ a ​show with a ​timeless theme people can relate to, ​whether it be good versus evil, ​overcoming ​the ​odds​, or just the power of unconditional love​​.​ You may leave this show loving it or hating it, but it will be a show you never forget!

Why see West Side Story? How is the story relevant today? Hate stems from so much ignorance and misunderstanding. Is there bad in this world? Absolutely! Is it scary to raise my kids in today’s society? You bet! Do I worry every single day I drop them off at elementary school? Sure! Young people can be cruel at such an early age but we can also teach our youth acceptance and patience and that although we may not all look alike, sound alike, believe in the same things-we are all human beings at our core. We all have feelings that hurt and lives that matter. My life is full of “different” people and I feel like the luckiest person for knowing each of them! It is what makes our world go ‘round. We should embrace our differences and learn to get along.
