True story of the small town that welcomed, the world. Welcome. Back to live at five I'm Beth Stevens and I'm he's so excited because I'm here with Delaney Westfall from, kinky. Boots let's. Just say it like that I. Love. Saying kinky boots because that's how Billy, Porter's he emphasizes, the boots don't you yes he does how's, it going over there at the Al Hirschfeld it's going, so well I'm just having a blast I couldn't, have asked for a better cast, or, show or crew everything. It's just amazing it's really unusual and, kind, of awesome, to be a replacement in a show and get to work with the original, cast, members which is what you're doing now with. Dark sands also back in the show tell, me about working with billions dark they're amazing I mean to. Be on the same stage as Billy Porter alone, is like the. Greatest honor. I mean, he's incredible, and to, watch him do the role to. Be on stage with him and interacting, with him in this role that he created, yeah, from the ground up it's just it's, amazing and stark. Is the best he's. Just isn't. It hard to fall for him every night no, no. He, it's so funny there's been several times when I've been out signing and girls. Have been like what's, it like to kiss her exams I was like that's an excellent question. It's. Fine you, managed he's amazing. He's the sweetest and so talented and so easy. To connect with on stage and it's. Just it's been so great so, let's talk about your background, because. This is the first time we've really I know that you were in sideshow, as, an. Understudy. Did you understand both women, I did and Megan McGinnis it as well do. You know, which side you were gonna be I mean that's hard this, is the sideshow revival, right yeah with Erin Davies and Emily, Padgett so. Tell me a little bit about that that was your first time working in Broadway yes, and what's. Even funnier is when we were doing the out of town at the Kennedy Center I was the only swing and, so rehearsals, would be very, weird because we. I mean obviously all the lines needed to be said and so and although you. Know the lines of the song so I literally would go back and forth and then you know, it was human lines with your other self yes it, was wonderful having Megan there who is a dear friend of mine and I'm it I'm, so grateful that we were like.

Placed Together and I was able to get to know her but, just. To have someone to work. Off of was amazing, because. You were doing both part did you go on in. Both Prime and or in any part I went on in DC. As violet, and then. In. New York I went, on once because, I was also the swing of the other ensemble, girls we went on as the tattoo girl. Many. Different roles yes, they're examples. So, tell me let's. Find out a little bit more about you yeah where'd you come from where are you from I'm from southern, Utah, st., George. Grew. Up there went. To school at Brigham Young University in. Provo Utah. And, I've. Been here since January. 2014. I, think yeah. And and. Then, took. On the role of Lauryn and kinky, boots in August, okay right yes so when you were in Utah when did you start performing I mean, my mom says that I started voice lessons when I was like six I don't, know I, know I feel like that's I don't. Know maybe she's right she might be telling stories maybe but. Then I did, my first show when I was eight years old it was a community, theater production of Annie and who. Are you I was, one, of the an orphan, or famous, Iram, and I think I had one line. It. Was amazing, that was so. Fun. And, I. Like got the bug and my mom was always so supportive and I you know took dance and singing and acting, all, growing, up and she was just always driving, me and, never. Once, you. Know doubted. That I would. Be successful which is I think the. Reason I'm here, today because I had such an amazing support system that's, fantastic. Yeah I hope she's watching hi mom hello, hey, um, what, roles, did you have growing up because I know you you studied this in school yeah um. Mmm. I. My. Senior production, at BYU was fans, the Phantom of the Opera I think we were like oh that's an easy sing you, know I mean we were one of three universities. To. First, obtain the rights to that oh yeah big production and I, played, Christine and it was amazing. It was so fun I. Don't. Know my favorite one of my favorite roles I've ever played is Keira. In Xanadu we did a production, at, this local.

Theater Carrie about the role gentlemen. It's just so fun so can you roller skate I can oh wait you were in, Starlight. Express. I. Had the very. Minimal. Skills that I had acquired, from Xanadu. And I, raised, my you know in the audition at, two akan Center for the Arts I raised, my hand when they said Kenyon roller skate wasn't of course I can and then we get to rehearsals, and there, are like bowls that you have to go up and like I got all these things we have to do and like we, had skate. School so we all a lot, of and these are roller skate these aren't like rollerblade yeah this is old school some of the people had blades, but I definitely was always in skates but adds fun a fun skill that now confidently. Put on my resume. Just in case any more coming up sure now on to roller skates on Broadway yeah, I mean there are right now in the bands visit and that's. The only one I can think of so that you got this right spongebob has um a skateboard, saw some skateboards, blades, maybe you're from but if you can enroll, or skate you can skateboard sure you could totally take over in spongebob if you want yeah, yeah that's, her next role. So. Now, I might, be wrong so I want you to correct me yes were you a pageant, girl I was. For. A very long time I did, I want to hear about all of that oh my god I did a pageant, I would just want an Iron County, is. That were st. George's yeah it's it's I went, to high school in Cedar City it's a southern Utah County, and, I. Mean, my mom was again, she was like you have these skills you quite a roller skate do impressions. You're very pretty let's do it so, I did and. Time. I was, 17. It was right before I left for college and the, sad end of the story is that I was. Going. To school in Provo it was like 4-hour, Drive and I would make it all the time for the different events, they. Take themselves so seriously which, is a wonderful thing we love that mm-hmm um but. It was getting to be too much in my first year of college and, like all of these things and so I actually, gave. Mike rant like I gave. It to the runner-up and she went to miss Utah pageant. School dropout yeah. I. Think a lot of people do it because there are so many scholarships, yes and I guns that and that's what I wanted, and I just, I I. Went. As far as I needed to go but. You had you. Know evening, gowns and all that drama and I have the crown to. Show it you, have the crown oh, I. Hope you share it with the Angels and can't keep it oh my gosh they would've loved that they. Would love that oh my, god alright well we're gonna take some questions because we have our facebook a lot of people, I have questions for you, first. Of all William on student you to know your Secret Santa gift is coming I swear Thank. You William oh my gosh. So. Another question is if you could be in any show on Broadway right now besides. Kinky boots which, would, you choose and why oh my gosh. Um. I. Feel. Like since I've been in kinky boots I have been able to see a whole lot, so. That makes it hard um but, there's always phantom there, is host phantom I mean who wouldn't want to be Christine and Phantom right, I've. Been almost on a fabulous wig and that's really she's sure Deportes. I've. Always thought that Glinda would be fun, I. Just. Want to say by the way if, you guys have not heard. Delaney. Sing you need to check out Instagram because. She sings Santa Claus is coming to town did, you watch that so, good just filmed it yesterday at, intermission, yes this, girl can sing oh he's, beautiful, what's your favorite Christmas Carol to sing um, I just sang a concert and I had to do a million of them um.

I Really love winter wonderland, that's. A fun one specifically. The Ella Fitzgerald, version very, specific. Range. It's, just my intermission, Christmas. Or Christmas interest. I don't know he has a hold out it's really good yeah it's fun so you you just did a little rehearsal and then went for it yeah I mean the boys parts are much harder than mine was I don't. Think that's true but I was there doing the harmonies I'm just singing the fretting and just. Singing, um, Kareena is asking what do you like about the character Lauren, everything. I, it's. The first time that I've been able to do, a role that is like so. Like. Me at my core, because. All the time I'm like the, engineer or like I need to be like put together and and, just. Like pretty you know in this Hannah's my family's get, to like be. Weird. And, like work. Awkwardly. And I don't, know it's just so fun I love, everything about her and I love playing. Her every night so if anyone's, out there and wants to write a role for you they should definitely have twerking awkward absolute, and weirdness, yes that's good mm-hmm, Jeffrey's, asking what was it like being in the beautiful tour it, was amazing, I did it for a year and a half I was part of the original touring, company, I. Mean. That show is so great. And seeing, the effect that it has on the audience every. Night that's. What kept me going especially towards. The end the the last few months it was just everyone. Is so touched and all those people grew up with the music and it's just so, it's, an important message I, just. I loved it I loved the show great, music to sing yeah, fun stuff fun. Stuff aren't you guys we have to get going but I'm asking one more question because we've got so many questions people. Are oh here, we've got two good ones so we'll ask you two good ones one is what's, the most vocally and emotionally demanding role.

You've Tackled I. Mean. Definitely, Christine, she's, she asks a lot. Sure. Does and Elly's asking what inspired your creativity and how do you keep from losing its spark, Wow. That's. A hard one you guys I would definitely say my mother she, she was a dancer, all growing up and her and my dad were professional, ballroom dancers, we, were actually at one point amateur, national champions, thing, and she. Always just pushed me to to. Do. What. I dreamed and. Fulfill. It and to. What pushes me honestly. Especially. Now like working every, night in this show it's it's the audience and knowing. Especially the message of kinky boots is so important right now and being. Able to deliver that in, the. Best way that I know how and. To that I say yeah. Everybody. Say yeah you guys go, see kinky boots that was really lame go through the other. Show if you don't see this lady and check out on instagram at de rainey mm-hmm.
