Tell me about your character. She's very sassy. She has a lot of attitude. She's like a little kid, but she unleashes a lot of attitude.
What's your favorite song in the production? "I Know Things Now." It's my solo. I get out of the wolf after he eats me and I'm saying what I've learned.
Why should people see "Into the Woods?" All of these different fairy takes are mixed into one. I think it's a great take on all of these fairy tales.
