Top 5 Musical Theatre Divas with Virginia Natoli

Top 5 Musical Theatre Divas with Virginia Natoli


I am surprised that this episode’s guest even allowed me to be part of this podcast, she demanded her own dressing room and to have grapes peeled and fed to her on the hour.  Today I am speaking about and to a Musical Theatre Diva!

My special guest today is currently playing Maria Callas in D2 Production’s Masterclass so before she gets me kicked out of the studio let’s hear from the wonderful Virginia Natoli
