Drama Desk Nom?!

I always tell the story of the morning I called my mom to tell her I had been nominated for Tony. She responded with “Are you sure? How do you know?” This morning, I’m the one who needs the proof. I am so thrilled to be nominated for a Drama Desk but I’m mostly just surprised. I had such a wonderful time performing in Nobody Loves You at Second Stage and I'm honored that the nominating committee recognized my performance.

However, the wonderful creative team really deserves all the recognition, because they basically handed me three awesome roles and "The Twitter Song" gift wrapped in a box on my first day.

They are Itamar Moses (book and lyrics), Gaby Alter (music and lyrics), Michelle Tattenbaum (director), Vadim Feichtner (music director), and Mandy Moore (choreographer).

Also, each of my kick-ass cast mates deserves this way more than I do.  They are so talented and funny.  I ADORE them.

Heath Calvert, Roe Hartrampf, Bryan Fenkart, Allen Read, Autumn Hurlbert, Leslie Kritzer, Aleque Reid, Lauren Molina, and Haven Burton.

Also, a shout out to the extremely talented Alex Brightman who originated these roles at the Old Globe in 2012 and made them what they are!

Thanks to Second Stage for being my home for all of last year and letting me play on that great stage!

As Evan would say… “#thanksDDAs #soexcited #canigetarealityshowoutofthis"

This was the look on my face this morning.
