An actor, singer, and writer. Her Broadway credits include: Christine Daaé - The Phantom of the Opera, Jellylorum - CATS, Smitty - How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Petra - A Little Night Music, and Arlene - Finian’s Rainbow. Sara starred Off-Broadway as Louisa in The Fantasticks (Original Revival Cast), and June in Anyone Can Whistle, at Encores!

Sara holds the unique distinction of performing two leading roles in two Broadway shows in the same week. By sheer farcical theatre- mishap, (that's a thing, by the way) she was asked to play the role of Petra in ‘Night Music’, (a role she had never played) only to return to her role of Christine in ‘Phantom' a couple days later.

Sara co-wrote and starred in The Aging Ingenue, a new mini web-series, now streaming here on Broadwayworld.com. She authored and produced her own adaptation of Calamity Jane (Directed by Eric Woodall) at Feinstein’s/ 54 Below - as well as her solo concert, Dream: The High Notes & Hijinx of a Broadway Soprano in playhouses all over these United States of America!
Raised in the recording studios of Los Angeles, Sara started singing professionally at the age of ten, providing background vocals for Michael Jackson’s History album, Addams Family Values, Animaniacs, Lamb Chop’s Play-Along, and Harry Connick Jr. and Mötley Crüe’s Christmas albums. Sara graduated with a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University’s prestigious Drama program.
