On this episode of Baring It All with Call Me Adam, on the Broadway Podcast Network, I am chatting with actress, writer, and author Jenna Gavigan. We talk about her Broadway debut alongside the legendary Bernadette Peters + the release of her books Lulu The Broadway Mouse & her newest release, Lulu The Broadway Mouse: The Show Must Go On. Since Jenna is a big “Sound of Music Fan,” we play a game inspired by “My Favorite Things.”

More on Jenna:
I’m a fourth generation New Yorker and proud of it! (Shout out to my ancestors who spent weeks crossing an ocean only to get to America to work jobs they didn’t like, so I could spend my life doing what I love. Their photos hang above my desk and I thank them daily).
As an actor, I’ve also lived in Los Angeles, but prefer New York. (Note: I would move back to L.A. in a heartbeat for a gig/call me if you’re stuck in traffic; I will help you navigate canyon roads).
I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing from Columbia University. While there I focused on fiction, television and screenwriting. I’m bossy, detail-oriented, and good at multi-tasking, so my ultimate goal is to be a television showrunner/mom.
-Housekeeping, especially laundry.
-Cooking, especially Italian food.
-The theatre, especially “the Broad-WAY,” as my Grandma calls it.
–Who Do You Think You Are and Finding Your Roots.
-WINE. (Which I lovingly call “juice.”)
-Candles. Beeswax candles (allegedly) purify the air.
–Dateline, 48 Hours, any crime show will do.
-Basic grammar and spelling. (Even if your iPhone tells you otherwise, please don’t use apostrophes to pluralize words!)
-My skin and spending far too much money on facials.
-Old stuff, particularly if it’s from England, Paris, or the East Coast of the United States.
-My husband. (Used to be obsessed with engagement rings, but I have one now, thank you!)
-Cheese. I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like.
