AccuRadio Song Of the Day-Krysta Rodriguez
Album:The Addams Family: Original Broadway Cast
Krysta Rodriguez is a musical theater performer who had her Broadway breakthrough playing Wednesday in the 2010 production of The Addams Family. She has done some film and TV but she is currently on Broadway in the musical First Date. She was born July 23, 1984 in Orange, CA. She appeared in musicals while in high school and appeared in the Trinity Broadcasting Network TV show Colby's Clubhouse from 1995-2000. She moved to New York City and made her Broadway debut in the short lived 2005 Beach Boys musical Good Vibrations. She also appeared in the 2007 revival of A Chorus Line and some other shows. The Addams Family comic strip has been successful as a TV series and a film. The plan to turn it into a musical was announced in 2007. The music was written by Andrew Lippa who also wrote the 2001 musical A Little Princess. His full time gig is musical director for Kristen Chenoweth. The show starred Nathan Lane as Gomez Addams and Bebe Neuwirth as Morticia Addams. Krysta played their daughter Wednesday and Pulled was her big song in act one. The show opened April 2010 and ran for a year and a half. So it was successful. Krysta left the show in Mar. 2011. You may have also seen her on the second season of the NBC TV series Smash as Katharine McPhee's new roommate. I watched the first season of Smash. But it went off the rails in season two and I'm sure I'm not the only one who gave up on it. Krysta is back on Broadway starring in First Date The Musical. The show opened in August. Here's Krysta Rodriguez performing Pulled in the 2010 show The Addams Family.
