Jennifer Babiak is breathtaking as Emma Carew, Dr. Jekyll's fiancee. Read on to see what she's up to when she's not wowing the crowds!
I grew up in Medford, NY, a small town in Eastern Long Island, Suffolk County. I am the youngest of 5 (two brothers, two sisters), so it was a lot of fun growing up with such a big family. We also always had a ton of pets, so it was a full house :)
I started singing first, My Grandma was a piano teacher and her father was a composer, so we have always had a very musical family. Once I started singing lessons at 16, I auditioned for the school musical and that was it for me! My mentor probably would be my first acting teacher Jack Allison, an incredible man, teacher, director and friend.
I was in college at NYU when the show was running on Broadway, I bought the cd and fell in love with the music, and thought the original cast was amazing! This is my first time doing the show, and I couldn't be happier.
West Side Story has always been my favorite show, with Gypsy and Sunday in the Park with George being a close second and third :) My dream role I think would be Christine in Phantom, especially because it's my Dad's favorite show and he would be ecstatic!
During the time off I love to spend quality time with my dog, going out with friends, the movies, yoga, the gym, reading, heading out to Long Island to see my family, oh and sleep-I love sleep haha
My Ipod has an eclectic mix, I have Joshua Radin on there, Cat Stevens, Carrie Underwood, Ben Gibbard, Jeff Buckley, Elbow, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Rachel Yamagata, Eva Cassidy, Harry Connick Jr., Nina Simone, etc.
