Do you think Emily Skinner hated math?

As kids all over America head back to school, decided to ask our favorite Broadway stars to look back at their own years in the classroom, sharing memories of favorite subjects and activities and describing their younger selves. Tony nominee Emily Skinner is currently chain-smoking her way through Billy Elliot as colorful ballet teacher Mrs. Wilkinson—no thanks to her high school math classes!

"Oh, girl! You better work on that math. You're gonna neeeeeeeeeed it."

What class did you dread and why?
Math, anyone?

What is your most embarrassing school moment?
Every day. In math class. Ahem.

In which extracurricular activities did you participate?
Anything that involved no math.
