She has been in Mamma Mia, and Beatles In Revue, and she is HYPED to play Mrs. Corry (and have her first speaking lines)!
She wants to send lots of love from 6 feet apart to Miss Sam and Miss Nicole, and all of her castmates that have to put up with her shenanigans this year. There will always be a special place in her heart for all of you.
"I'll see you on the other side."
"Oh Bojack, there is no other side."
