She has played various roles in shows such as Seussical, Les Miserables, 9 to 5, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and more.
On this episode, Ann discusses her long career, including becoming a mom while being a working actor. We also talk about her new streaming musical “No One Called Ahead” (which was filmed for a brand new streaming media format) and how film and the internet is changing the theatre industry.
