Legally Blonde the Musical

I’m often asked “so, you’re a singer? Where are you singing?” Well, here’s a snapshot! I just wrapped a production of Legally Blonde with the loveliest cast; it was an absolute joy to get back to my own craft. And what a fun show!  Yes, it’s a little dated.  The references?

I am thrilled to be a member of Vocology in Practice, a “global network of elite voice professionals at the forefront of vocal training for today’s contemporary singer”.  As you know, there’s nothing I love as much as a good voice geek-out with other like-minded #voicegeeks, so I’m just delighted to be in their company as one of the resident speech pathologists (and …
