The closest thing I have to a production photo of myself in the 2017 Broadway production of War Paint. I understudied the legendary Patti LuPone in the role of Helena Rubinstein. This photo was taken during my put-in rehearsal, and I’m belting out “Forever Beautiful” in a costume that was not quite finished. I went on for Ms. LuPone nine times during the show’s 236-performance run.
