Stephanie Courtney aka Sayonne is a Wonderful New Discovery To Me

I am so fortunate that I live, work, and cover theater in a town like New York.  It never fails to surprise me at how much talent is brimming over in New York.  When I meet young actresses like Stephanie Courtney aka Sayonne, I am very excited to talk to them, because they are really embarking on a wonderful journey that has some great highs and great lows.  Many times, I feel like the proud and fun fairy godfather to so many of these performers. 

It turns out that Ms. Sayonne and I are both First Generation Americans, and even with our age difference, there are a many similarities in our upbringing.  I loved that her father and brother travel with her and protect her as best they can, and because of that foundation, she has managed to work as an actress and maintain a relatively unscathed path towards achieving her dreams and goals.  She also has a great manager that is truly helping to groom this talented young lady. 

She is also using her passion and energy as a musical artist to explore her more popular sensibilities.  As much as I LOVE talking to the many famous and established artists, it does my heart good to know that this young woman working in theater has a grasp of who these great artists like, Chita Rivera, Lillias White, Betty Buckley, Heather Headley, Montego Glover, and Rema Webb are, and holds their legendary work in high regards.  How could you not be a proud, theater loving, fairy godfather?  Please click HERE enjoy my conversation with this wonderful young woman.
