Heidi Blickenstaff’s amazing performing career has recently been highlighted by her breakout feature role in Disney’s Freaky Friday. She and Bret met as understudies in the original Broadway cast of Broadway’s the Little Mermaid. She met her now husband while doing a production of the Who’s Tommy while dating other people. During this episode we discuss how they met and fell in love, and how the sparks flew during an understudy rehearsal.

Both Nicholas and Heidi have the experience of being married before and Nicholas has children as well, and their perspective on becoming a blended family is fascinating. Heidi even wrote vows to his sons.

Their mission right now is to create awareness around current issues with the PSA programs such as GenZ Stay Home and Gen Z Go Vote. Raising awareness for the Gen Z folks to be conscious of their contributions to the world at this time. They’ve now become producers and creators together, something we have learned a lot about.

These two folks are such an inspiration and prove you can love who you love and love what you do! Go support their initiatives and give them a follow.

This week’s Spotlight on Love question: “What are ways I could meet people to date? I am a 17 year old lesbian in a small town?”
