In 1987 I made my professional acting debut at Lincoln Center, in the City Opera’s production of “South Pacific.”   P1190377.JPG Those two month s were when I really got “bitten by the bug” (for those of you familiar with the show, I played “Ngana,” the Frenchman’s daughter who sings “Dites-moi”). 23 years later, I’m still acting, and today I got to see the show live, for the very first time.
