Brook is an actress/singer/dancer/model who performs/lives primarily in the vein of Musical Theatre Showgirl-Land! She is starting to dabble in the TV/film world as well now! Brooke grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. She has younger triplet siblings. Brook is obsessed with speaking in a New Zealand accent (thank you, Summer Heights High). If she wasn’t an actress, she’d be a Women’s Naturopathic Medical Doctor specializing in root cause treatment of women’s hormone disorders, because female-identifying humans deserve WAY better advocation for their health than what’s been offered to them for the past century!
Fun Fact: She learned how to spin a rope and do some cool rope tricks for a role she played at Goodspeed Opera House this past summer.

What was your favorite ML gig?
The Harry Potter Pensieve Experience at Comic Con – I got to work with an amazing group of people and we had such a blast together all week, even in the midst of all the madness!
What do you love about the Lane?
You become such fast friends with every Laner you meet and work with! I love forming instant connections with all these amazing people because our lifestyles and passions and careers are all so relatable. Not to mention, you end up having no less than ten mutual friends in common with EVERYONE!!
What would the title of your autobiography be?
Do I HAVE to Wear Heels? (And Other Comical First World Complaints)
What is your go-to coffee order?
Flat White with Oat Milk
What song best describes you & why?
American Girl by Tom Petty
Describe the best museum/gig/play/game you’ve ever been to.
Seeing The Normal Heart on Broadway in 2011 was such a life-changing and heart-wrenching experience. It’s the only time I’ve left the theatre STILL crying and so shaken up by a show and its message.
What’s your morning ritual like?
Coffee, moisturizer, and something on the internet that makes me laugh.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Honestly, moving to NYC, figuring out how to make a living for myself, and not giving up on my dreams. Sounds simple, but it really is my greatest life accomplishment thus far! Anyone who moves to this big bad city on their own is a superhero and should give themselves a big ol’ pat on the back.
When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?
Light some candles, do a face mask, meditate, watch Queer Eye, and/or facetime my best friend. Just ALLLLLL the self-care.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
My dad always reminds me to recognize change, strive to embrace it, and try to be a change leader. It’s an inevitable part of life, and to resist it is to suffer, so we might as well welcome constant change with open arms!
As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
A cashier at Target. I still have my toy cash register.
