Connect with Margot
Margot Plum originally wanted to be a dermatologist, but after seeing her first Broadway show, Beauty and the Beast, it was all singing and dancing from that point onward. It soon became a vehicle for her to unite theatre goers who didn’t expect to walk away with a deeper understanding of empathy, sensitivity, and the world around them. As someone literally breaking into the business right now, Kerry will check in with Margot from time to time to get her advice, and hear her stories.
