Ep51 – Leslie Kritzer

This self-proclaimed Jew-rican is tearing it up 8 times a week in Beetlejuice on Broadway, consistently proving herself as one of the funniest people on Broadway.

After deciding she loved performing at a young age, she found herself playing piano at Carnegie Hall at age 9. She originally felt she would seek classical voice training before deciding musical theatre was the way to go, but not before a slight problem with steeling led her to find her tribe. Her story is one of astonishment, as it includes an amazing instance of “theatre saved my life.”
