Petra in Falling Behind
When did you know you wanted to be an actress?
I came to New York City for the first time my 7th grade year and saw Mary Poppins, from that moment on I knew that I wanted to be involved in the Broadway world somehow.
What attracted you to Re-Works: The Fabulous 80s?
Past work with MTWorks and I love the 80's.
One guilty pleasure:
"The Breakfast Club" with a pint of ice cream.
If you could get anyone to see the show, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Alan Cumming, he's one of my idols in the theater community and on my list of people I'd love to have lunch with to pick his brain and get his thoughts on acting.
Don't miss Re-Works: The Fabulous 80s, part of MTWorks' BENEFIT WEEK, September 10-14, 2014 at The Theater at the 14th Street Y.
