From High School to Broadway: Meet Micaela Diamond

 

One week before starting in the prestigious musical theatre program at Carnegie Mellon University, Micaela Diamond received the opportunity of a lifetime. At 19 years old, Micaela is now making her Broadway debut as “Babe” Cher in The Cher Show. When making this decision, Micaela recalls, “It was a hard one, but I knew from the moment they offered me the role that I was going. I was more than excited to be doing what I've wanted to do my entire life, but it meant I was giving up this other thing that I had committed to do for the next four years.” Micaela is also using this opportunity to show people how badass queer women can be.
