'I brought that vulnerability into the room with me.'

Age: 29

Hometown: Glenelg, MD

Current Role: A high-profile debut as wallflower Adrian, love interest of the title character, in the Broadway musical adaptation of Sylvester Stallone’s iconic Rocky.

Stage Cred: A long list of off-Broadway and regional credits at such venues as Playwrights Horizons, the O’Neill Center, the Goodman Theatre and the Shakespeare Theatre.

"It was very rural where I grew up. We grew a lot of our own food. I mowed seven acres on a tractor.”

“I started doing professional theater when I was 16 at Toby’s Dinner Theatre in Columbia, Maryland, where [Rocky co-star] Andy Karl also worked. Isn’t that insane?"

“I was scared, so I didn't come to New York after college. I stuck it out in D.C. for eight years—hopping around the regional theater circuit. I moved here in 2010. I finally felt ready."

“I feel like an adult because I have walls and a door. My boyfriend and I moved in together in August. Before that, I was in the dining room of a railroad apartment. I had absolutely no privacy."

“A big reason why I am in Rocky is that almost two years ago my sister passed away in a car crash. Rocky was one of my first auditions after that. I brought that vulnerability into the room with me.”

“Watching the final fight is very upsetting. Even though I know what’s going to happen, I get caught up in it and have to cover my eyes.”
 
“I hear ‘Yo, Adrian!’ a lot these days. But now I just respond, ‘Yo! What’s up!’”
