From the Director: This is our first time working with Kirsten. She auditioned in NYC for us and we loved her. Kirsten is one of the hardest working performers in the show. I am often amazed at her work ethic at such a young age. She is a very experienced actress and impressive accomplishment to show for it. I often find myself pointing to Kirsten if I need to use someone as an example of technical stagecraft skills, energy, and THE IT FACTOR. Kirsten has far exceeded expectations and we truly cannot wait to open the curtain on this very talented performer. She is 100% pure joy! She's ready for the big time- right this second. I don't say that often.
