Congratulations Anna! Are you happy with the result?

Thank you! It was wonderful, and the feedback and responses I have had, both from the live performance and from the video have been incredible!

When you were announced, my heart leapt for you – the wave of love and happiness for you in the theatre was so affecting. Did you sense that affection, or were you too overwhelmed?

Thank you so much!  I was pretty overwhelmed when my name was announced, but my mind was actually very clear.  I felt full of emotion and gratitude, and also very calm, all at the same time.

I wanted to really acknowledge every person in the theatr...
