I'm always trying to convince myself there's something important about what I do. But some peoples' lives are really altered by a night at the theater.
You have to learn how to take care of yourself.
I was totally all about the American Girl dolls when I was little - I had so many.
Female artists I love the most are Fiona Apple, Paramour and Regina Spektor - those girls that really write amazing songs themselves, and they're younger and cool. I'm not quite sure I could ever write songs like any of them, but if I could, I would.
I was feeling like a real misfit in middle school, but when I saw 'Wicked,' it made me feel really cool for being different... and you can carve that in stone!
A lot of teenagers have parents that are maybe a little too real with them.
I can now put 'experienced aerialist' on my resume.
I did commercials and voice-overs as a kid, and it just lead to musical theatre opportunities.
I didn't think it was my dream to be on Broadway; it just sort of became that, and then it just became me wanting it more and more and more.
I have worked hard in my career, but I have been lucky as well.
I legit can not parallel park. This is no joke!
I listen to a lot of indie or rock music.
I think my great-grandpa was an opera singer or something.
I was always singing around my house, and my parents thought they should put me into voice lessons just for fun.
I was born in Westchester, NY. I grew up around the Rye Brook area, and then I moved to White Plains with my family.
I was, like, this token teen angst child of Broadway. It's so funny. What is that? I don't even know. But I loved it.
I'm really excited about the revolution that is young people actually playing young people on Broadway.
I'm so thankful for my one year at regular high school in White Plains.
I've never been involved in something where people cared about my personal life and the gossip of it!
In 'Next to Normal,' I had millions of breakdowns and panic attacks, but nobody ever heard about those.
