Last time I confessed my crush on Laura Benanti (HERE) Another Broadway-related person that I am "an enthusiastic devotee" of is Heidi Blickenstaff. My "fanboyish-ness" started when I first saw her in [title of show].
Here are my reasons, in no particular order, why I am a Heidi Blickenstaff fanboy:
She's so brave about letting us see who she is. OK, maybe a more intense, theatrical version of herself, but her nonetheless! And talk about a loyal friend...
She's a respected regional theatre actress. And talk about range! Leading the cast of the Kander and Ebb revue, First You Dream, that went on to play The Kennedy Center...her Helen Hayes award-winning performance in Meet John Doe...and at the Weston Playhouse as Diana in next to normal...you know how I feel about that!
So, what are you a fanboy or fangirl of Broadway-wise? Let me know via Twitter (@jkstheatrescene), or email (email@example.com) or leave a comment below!
