"The couple is surrounded by several standouts in the supporting cast. Nancy Ticotin provides a tart contrast to so much sentiment as Gloria's disapproving mother. Alma Cuervo is warm and familiar as Gloria's supportive grandmother. Claudia Yanez is a revelation as Gloria's sister Rebecca, making the most of a small role."
I got to be a part of The Backstage Blonde's On The Road series and it was a dream come true to be featured along with some actors that I love and admire. Below is an excerpt of my interview. Make sure to check out the full interview by clicking right here.
This one!! I remember seeing On Your Feet! on Broadway when it was in previews and having to physically restrain myself from going onstage. Haha.. but really, I sat in the audience and I knew that this was something that I needed to be a part of and I had a weird peace about it. I knew it would happen.
I’ve never had the chance to be 100% myself onstage when it comes to my Latin background. I was born in Venezuela and grew up speaking only Spanish at home. One of our opening numbers is called Tradicion and it’s a celebration of my Latin culture. I honestly could just do that number and leave feeling fulfilled and like I got to live my dream that night. The fact that there are two more hours of stage time after that is the cherry on top of a very delicious cake.
Hairspray!! Directed by Jerry Mitchell who is our director at On Your Feet! I didn’t make that connection until now, AH!!
