Last winter, I was in Chicago preparing for the World Premier of Banana Shpeel at the Chicago Theatre. One day, I walked into the green room where I found a new friend. She was the visiting girlfriend of a cast member, but she instantly became my new girl friend. She's from the Seattle area, where my family now lives, and is an exquisite dancer now hoofing in the big city. This last week in New York, after sleeping on her couch, she and I trekked around Hell's Kitchen to capture her girlish gorgeousness.
