ROSE HEMINGWAY (Rosemary Pilkington in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying)
What is your happiest Valentine's Day memory?
My happiest Valentine's Day memory is the first Valentine's Day I spent with my husband [actor Geoffrey Hemingway]. We were in Buffalo, New York, on the very last day of our year on tour with Mamma Mia! It was such a special year for us because that's where we met and fell in love. So celebrating Valentine's Day was the perfect way to end it!
What Broadway song would you use for a Valentine's Day serenade?
I'd definitely choose "Our Love Is Here to Stay" because I think it describes the perfect love: a lifelong love that stands the test of time. It was the song Geoff and I danced our first dance to on the night of our wedding.
Tell us the perfect menu for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.
The perfect Valentine's Day meal would definitely be Surf and Turf! Who can ever get enough surf and turf? Not this girl. :-) That and a big glass of red wine!
