What’s your favorite reality tv show? Survivor. I had a dream that [Director of Ensembles] Eric Lane Barnes and I were playing Survivor but didn't want the rest of the tribe to know we were friends. So we communicated solely through obscure song lyrics. We were well on our way to Final Tribal Council when I woke up!

What do you recommend off the menu at The Triple Door? The blackened shrimp are amazing!

What’s the best thing about being a Shoe? The best thing is knowing these women have my back, that they will step up if I forget a lyric or dance step, and that they will make it look easy and seamless. It's a rad group of women and I'm so proud to call them my friends. 

 

Jina Jansson

This year’s theme is reality tv. If you could decide the theme for a future concert, what would it be? Totally '80s! As terrible and embarrassing as so many things were from the 80s, the music was the best! Would love to do a show featuring a little bit of everything from Punk to Pop.

What’s your favorite reality tv show? The Great British Baking Show....does that count?

What minor celebrity should be on the next season of Dancing with the StarsBen Stein. Because I'm obsessed. That's the only way I'd ever watch DWTS. 

 

Diana Gard

This year’s theme is reality tv. If you could decide the theme for a future concert, what would it be? Life on the new Mars Colony.

What do you recommend off the menu at The Triple Door? Everything is fantastic, but I’d have to recommend the Sichuan Green Beans.

What’s the best thing about being a Shoe? You can look up people’s dresses…Oh. You mean...Oh, well the experience of harmonizing with the most fantastic human beings on earth.

 

Heather Luberti

This year’s theme is reality tv. If you could decide the theme for a future concert, what would it be? I would love a concert based on Sondheim, all Sondheim. Either that or a show based on terribly cheesy songs from teen musicals (e.g. Descendants or High School Musical).

What minor celebrity should be on the next season of Dancing with the StarsOh my goodness, I would love to see Chris Hardwick or Stephen Colbert. Either would actually get me to watch that show.

What’s the best thing about being a Shoe? I love being a Shoe. It's sisterhood personified and an amazing array of women, no two are the same. We help each other, laugh together, and always work together to make everything we do fantastic.

 

Aviva Ventura

This year’s theme is reality tv. If you could decide the theme for a future concert, what would it be? A musical acting out what happens in my head when men explain to me things I already know.

What minor celebrity should be on the next season of Dancing with the Stars? Big Bird!

What’s the best thing about being a Shoe? The laughter. So so so much laughter.

 

Julie Armitage

What’s your favorite reality tv show? I don't watch reality t.v. but my house would be an epic show, just sayin.

What do you recommend off the menu at The Triple Door? I've never eaten, only performed...but the snacks they feed us are amazing!!!!

What’s the best thing about being a Shoe? I love my Shoes...all my Shoes. Sensible, practical and naughty!
