On Broadway, Melissa had the privilege of performing the role of Cosette in the closing company of Les Miserables alongside legendary Broadway performer Terrance Mann. Recently she originated the role of Pat in Bombshells, the Musical at the Actor’s Playhouse in Miami. Other favorite roles include Bella in a NYC adaptation of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata titled Lyz, Kathy in The Last Five Years, Joanna in Sweeney Todd, Amy in Company, and Kathryn/Lilly in Kiss Me Kate to name a few. Television credits include regional commercials and “One Life to Live” where she got to say the most riveting line in Soap opera history: “Excuse me, is that a dead body?” She has also paid homage to the Mouse, performing at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando and At Tokyo Disney in Japan. So far the best part of this life journey has been meeting Brian, her husband of 14 years, and the arrival of two lovely daughters, Catherine and Edina.
