Cinderella's Marla Mindelle on D-List Athletes, Soul-Singing White Boys and a Serious Friends Addiction

Cinderella's Marla Mindelle on D-List Athletes, Soul-Singing White Boys and a Serious Friends Addiction
Marla Mindelle shares her favorite movies, books and undying love of Justin Timberlake.

Theater stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, so Broadway.com decided it was high time to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. Next up is Marla Mindelle, the Broadway belter who starred as the meek Sister Mary Robert in Sister Act and currently stars as stepsister Gabrielle in the magical musical Cinderella. Mindelle shares why Friends makes her feel cold and cool at the same time, her adoration of the musical Ghost and the kind of boys that drive her wild.

TV SHOW: Friends
“'I’ve seen every episode at least 20 times. I watch it on Nick at Nite after Cinderella, thinking, 'Wow, I'm so old, but damn, I'm so cool.' Also, I was once obsessed with the X-Files, and currently obsessed with Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.”

MOVIE: Bad Education
“I love Pedro Almodovar movies; Bad Education is my favorite.”
 

STAGE SHOW (OTHER THAN MY OWN): Ghost the Musical
“I saw it four times, and if it was still on Broadway, I would take over as lead producer.”

SINGER: High Singing, Soul-Riffing White Guys
“Any high singing, soul-riffing white guy—like Marc Broussard, Justin Timberlake, Bernhoft, Daniel Merriweather. These days I'm also listening to the albums of Royal Teeth, Delta Rae, Graffti6, Emile Sande and Miguel.”

BOOK: Tons!
“Too many. I read everything: 1984, Ender's Game, House of Sand and Fog, Pillars of the Earth, Blonde, American Psycho, A Clockwork Orange. I could go on and on.”

ATHLETE: The Splash D-Listers
“The D-Listers that agreed to partake on that disastrous diving show, Splash.”
 

CELEBRITY: Justin Timberlake
“I'm ashamed to admit how much I love Justin Timberlake, but there you have it.”
 

VACATION SPOT: Long Beach Island
“My family and I would always rent a house on Long Beach Island. Even though it's just the New Jersey shore, it's a family tradition!”

APP: Scoutmob
“Great restaurant discounts in the city.”

 

FASHION DESIGNER: Bar III
“If I could afford it my wardrobe would consist of All Saints, Top Shop, French Connection, Free People; but instead, you'll find me buying the lesser known Macy's exclusive line, Bar III.”

BEAUTY PRODUCT: Too Faced Natural Eye Pallet
“Best eye shadow there is.”

 

RANDOM OBSESSION: Pete, the cat
“Nancy Opel's (female) cat, Pete. She's sitting next to me as I'm writing this.”
