Imagine having to travel to a new city every two to three weeks, living out of hotels and tour caravans, performing a two-and-a-half hour musical every night—twice on Saturdays. Now imagine doing all of that while trying to maintain a healthy diet and be a present mom to three children all under the age of nine.

Currently the show is wrapping up a three-week stint at Los Angeles’ Pantages theater before it moves on to Chicago and finally lands back on Broadway in April. Intent Blog was lucky enough to catch up with Deborah to ask about performing on Broadway again (she starred in Elton John’s “Aida” in 2004) and how she manages to balance a busy show business career while raising a family and staying healthy.
