2008-04-07 19:57:25 [Message] Michael J Curtiss -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Welcome, Alexandra
2008-04-07 19:57:44 [Message] Michael J Curtiss -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
We're very excited to have you join us

2008-04-07 19:57:11 [Message] Azuah. -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: what's it like
hanging out with the cast?


2008-04-07 19:58:06 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
It's always a lot of fun, but we're like a family so we always have our ups and
downs.
2008-04-07 19:58:34 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
We love to go out to dinner and have LOST nights every Thursday!


2008-04-07 19:59:02 [Message] Liz -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Alexandra, what is
your dream role to play on Broadway?


2008-04-07 19:59:56 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Well, being a big Kristin Chenoweth fan, I would obviously love to get the chance to
play Glinda one day!
2008-04-07 20:00:39 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
think any character you feel connected to and love getting to play is a dream role.


2008-04-07 20:01:04 [Message] pg1234 -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Do you ever
wish you could understudy Ilse?

2008-04-07 20:01:25 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Totally! She's a fantastic role
2008-04-07 20:01:45 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But I know I don't quite fit for it.
2008-04-07 20:02:01 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But yes, I'd love to sing Blue Wind.

2008-04-07 20:02:27 [Message] bballdanman23 -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Kind
of a dumb question, I know, but did you happen to go see fellow cast member Jennifer
Damiano in Next to Normal at Second Stage? If so, what were your thoughts on the
production/cast?

2008-04-07 20:02:46 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
did get the chance to see it and I though Jenn was amazing!!!!
2008-04-07 20:02:51 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: It
was such a great role for her
2008-04-07 20:03:02 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
And I loved how original the production was
2008-04-07 20:03:47 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Brian D'Arcy James and Alice Ripley never cease to amaze. It's kind of ridiculous
how good they are!!!

2008-04-07 20:03:58 [Message] Grey -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Which role in
Spring Awakening that you understudy do you most enjoy playing?


2008-04-07 20:05:54 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Well, this is probably kind of predictable, but I love going on for Wendla. But not
just because she's the lead role. I find her character very relatable and I just love
that she has so many scenes and songs to express herself in and show her character.
It's harder with the other girls because they only have a few lines to get who they
are across to the audience.
2008-04-07 20:06:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But other than Wendla, I really love going on for Thea. It's always so fun!
2008-04-07 20:06:14 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Except for those glasses....
2008-04-07 20:06:16 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
haha

2008-04-07 20:06:35 [Message] amanda -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Is it hard
doing 8 shows a week?

2008-04-07 20:06:42 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Yes.
2008-04-07 20:07:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: It
definitely is hard and exhausting, but worth it!


2008-04-07 20:08:00 [Message] billy -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: how do like
living in NYC?
2008-04-07 20:09:17 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
It's great most days! You can always get a good meal no matter what!
2008-04-07 20:09:43 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But the weather isnt always fantastic. It's get very windy...I miss my car on those
days...
2008-04-07 20:10:36 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
You can never say that "there's nothing to do" because chances are...in New York
City there's always something.

2008-04-07 20:11:10 [Message] MaddiG -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: If you could
play in male role in Spring Awakening who would it be?

2008-04-07 20:11:28 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Oh cool, I've never really thought about that before....gimmee a second...
2008-04-07 20:12:00 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
would have to say Georg.

2008-04-07 20:12:10 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: OK...
My turn... why?

2008-04-07 20:12:20 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: He
gets to be really quirky plus he gets that great solo in Touch Me.
2008-04-07 20:12:35 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
His character gets to have a lot of fun!

2008-04-07 20:12:40 [Message] Kate B. -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Do you have
any audition advice for anyone attending the open calls?


2008-04-07 20:13:13 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
This is going to sound incredibly cheesy and cliche, but just....be yourself.
2008-04-07 20:13:22 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
And don't riff.
2008-04-07 20:13:36 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Haha Spring Awakening's not a pop musical
2008-04-07 20:15:00 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But in all seriousness, just walk in there and give it your best. Just have fun with
it!!! What have you got to lose?! That's how I felt about it. I had not expectations so
it made me less nervous.
2008-04-07 20:15:18 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
*no expectations
2008-04-07 20:15:29 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
oops...they dont teach typing here on Broadway...
2008-04-07 20:16:35 [Message] Jennifer Sue Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
what do you miss most about life "before braodway?"

2008-04-07 20:16:49 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Obviously they don't teach spelling in New Hampshire either!

2008-04-07 20:17:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Definitely The Peacock Players.
2008-04-07 20:17:52 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
And just the environment of community theatre in general.
2008-04-07 20:18:10 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
There will always be something so special about the whole "let's get together and
put on a show!" attitude.

2008-04-07 20:18:48 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Don't
forget the late nights at Chili's!!!

2008-04-07 20:19:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Everyone works together and helps out with all the aspects of the production, not
just their specialized area.Which always provides for some great bonding.
2008-04-07 20:19:15 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
And of course Chillis!!!!!!
2008-04-07 20:19:44 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
There isn't a Chili's in Manhattan! I'm dying for some skillet queso!!!!

2008-04-07 20:20:51 [Message] suchaRADICALx -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
What do you usually do on your day off?

2008-04-07 20:21:41 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
usually do one of two things. Go visit my dad who lives an hour out of the city or
most of the time I go back home to New Hampshire to see my friends.

2008-04-07 20:22:14 [Message] pg1234 -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: What did it
feel like when you found out you were going on for Wendla the first time?

2008-04-07 20:23:16 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Well, I found out about an hour and a half before the show so everything was a big
rush. I didn't really feel nervous because I was so focused on just getting ready and
remembering everything.
2008-04-07 20:23:29 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Plus, I also wanted to have fun!
2008-04-07 20:24:01 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Everything was a big blur so I didn't really get a chance to freak out about it.

2008-04-07 20:24:12 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: After
you were done did you have a chance to reflect on it?
2008-04-07 20:24:51 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
did, but as I said it was just a huge blur. I didn't really remember everything that
happened hahah!!!
2008-04-07 20:26:14 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But once I had the first time under my belt, it just got more fun and I have been able
to explore the character so much more now that I'm not concentrating on my
blocking or choreography all the time.

2008-04-07 20:26:38 [Message] amanda -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Have you
ever had a problem with somone in the stage seats?

2008-04-07 20:27:11 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: No
actually. People will talk to me a lot of the time, but they're always perfectly nice
and complimentary.

2008-04-07 20:30:07 [Message] Annie -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: What's the
funniest/strangest thing that has ever happened onstage during a performance?

2008-04-07 20:30:25 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Oh my goodness...how do I choose?!?!
2008-04-07 20:31:37 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Alexandra says that this answer is going to take a while to type out so hold tight.
2008-04-07 20:32:27 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
guess one that really stands out in my mind has to with Kate Burton who was
playing The Adult Women at the time. It was during the scene between the two
Gabor parents in Whispering and Kate's line is "What you will...a reformatory".
Well one day, out of nowhere she accidentally said "What you will... a
conservatory.."
2008-04-07 20:32:52 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
We all lost it!!!!!!!!!!!
2008-04-07 20:33:08 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
And the best part is....she did it again another random day!!!!!

2008-04-07 20:33:51 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I have
one....

2008-04-07 20:33:57 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Shoot.

2008-04-07 20:34:15 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: How
has your daily schedule changed? In other words, working so late every night of the
week, do you find that you stay up all night now?
2008-04-07 20:34:16 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: ;)
2008-04-07 20:34:29 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Well, I've always been a big night owl.
2008-04-07 20:34:43 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But it's definitely gotten worse now that I don't have to wake up at 6 am for school.

2008-04-07 20:35:16 [Message] Lauren -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: have you or
any of your cast mates received any gifts that hold some sort of sentimental value?

2008-04-07 20:36:21 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
People get so many different things, but there is one that I find really nice. I'm not
sure if it's just one person who does this or different people, but lots of cast
members have received scrapbooks from fans.
2008-04-07 20:37:01 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
It's so nice to have your experience there documented and they're always so lovely. I
can't imagine how much time someone would put into something like that.
2008-04-07 20:37:12 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Stuff that's handmade is always really special.

2008-04-07 20:38:31 [Message] samantha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Are you
planning to go back to school at some point? Would you be in school now if it wasn't for
the show?

2008-04-07 20:39:56 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
actually am still in school. I am currently a senior at Nashua High School South.
Since I only had a few credits left to graduate, my school is letting me do an
"independent study".
2008-04-07 20:40:21 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: So
as long as I finish everything, I'll be at my graduation in June!

2008-04-07 20:42:55 [Message] MeganB -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: What is your
favorite Broadway show of all-time, and favorite show currently playing?

2008-04-07 20:43:30 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
My favorite Broadway show of all-time is hands down The Light in the Piazza
2008-04-07 20:43:47 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: It
was possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
2008-04-07 20:44:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: As
far as current Broadway, I really haven't had the chance to see much else...
2008-04-07 20:44:45 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I'd
love to get to a bunch of those shows though such as In The Heights, Sunday in the
Park with George, and South Pacific

2008-04-07 20:45:05 [Message] coolkid11776 -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Alexandra when you joined the cast of Spring Awakening what was it like? did u get to
rehease with the full cast during the day or did u have to learn the material at your own
2008-04-07 20:46:00 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
did many rehearsals on my own, learning blocking with the stage manager and
assistant director and also learning choreography with our Dance Captain who at
the time was Lauren Pritchard.
2008-04-07 20:46:20 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
She was the first person I met, which was very exciting!!!!
2008-04-07 20:46:44 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Then after the first week, I had rehearsals with the other understudies
2008-04-07 20:46:56 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
We did scene work and run-thrus of the show together.
2008-04-07 20:47:22 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
We still have understudy rehearsal about once a week every week! They gotta keep
us prepared!

2008-04-07 20:48:11 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: We only
have time for a few more questions... Please submit your because there is a chance we
can pick yours.

2008-04-07 20:49:20 [Message] amanda -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Is it hard
to do the beating scene when the audience laughs?
2008-04-07 20:49:52 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
think when there is laughter most of the time is nervous laughter, but it is an
uncomfortable feeling.
2008-04-07 20:50:07 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
Whenever that happens, I'll instantly get more intense.
2008-04-07 20:50:13 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
For example...
2008-04-07 20:51:09 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
One time they actually laughed as he was throwing me to the ground and about to
kick me as I was rolling away screaming. I ended up screaming louder so they
would realize how intense and not funny the moment was.
2008-04-07 20:51:22 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
guess I was trying to make them feel guilty....haha :P



2008-04-07 20:51:50 [Message] Manny -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Who are you
closest with in the cast?

2008-04-07 20:52:01 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: This is
our last question of the night.

2008-04-07 20:52:29 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: I
feel like I'm close with a lot of people there in a lot of different ways.
2008-04-07 20:52:52 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
My best friend at the theatre if I had to pick would probably be Gerard.
2008-04-07 20:53:39 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But the 4 of us in the dressing room have a great dynamic.
2008-04-07 20:53:54 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
It's me, Remy, Lilli, and Jenna and we all get along great!!
2008-04-07 20:54:13 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room:
But everyone there is very close.
2008-04-07 20:55:05 [Message] alexandra socha -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: As
I said in the beginning, it's like a family.

2008-04-07 20:55:13 [Message] Brett Mallard -> Alexandra Socha Chat Room: Thanks

in New Hampshire, and we miss you.
