INTERMISSION - The Nate Patten and Cam Collins podcast #BookedIt - A Broadway Musician's Guide to Theatre, Facebook & Being #Grateful. The show wickedly skewers online "humble-bragging" of all sorts. CONTENT WARNING - Nate's insights are funny, frank - and foul. He uses a lot of strong language. He's also a gifted interviewer, and the podcast features a series of wonderfully-spoken, interesting guests. Due to adult language, this podcast is not for children! I enjoy it a lot, but usually wear headphones. Find #BookedIt on iTunes or Stitcher.

- PURLIE (1970) - Purlie
- MAN OF LA MANCHA (1965) - Dulcinea
- HELLO, DOLLY! (1964) - Finale
