Torns (who has been with the show since the very beginning appearing in the Ensemble and understudying the role of “Jenna”) takes over from the show’s composer and current leading lady Sara Bareilles who plays her final performance tomorrow, March 11th, 2018 and right before American Idol and Smash favorite Katherine McPhee begins her limited engagement in the Tony and Grammy winning musical starting April 10th, 2018.
How amazing is it to go from appearing in the Ensemble and now getting to be the leading lady 8 times a week.
