The One with the Spreadsheets
Miriam Browning-Nance can sing and organize. Not necessarily in that order. She received a degree in music, theatre and religion and then went on to do a graduate performance diploma in classical voice. Her only problem with the arts is deciding whether to be onstage or in the wings.
With many years of experience in managing adults and children alike, making dinner while explaining periodic tables, all the while telling patrons that yes, they must bring in their unused tickets before they can exchange them, and keeping track of Desdemona's handkerchief after recording the Willow Song for her, Miriam is just the right person to keep Laura's visions reigned in and organized just enough (lest they end up like Don Quixote's).
Last year, after having seen Miriam both running the box office and singing Pamina on the same night, a baffled woman came up to her and said "That was you? At the box office and on stage?! That deserves another donation!!" (It did.)
POM roles: Berta, Contessa Almaviva, Pamina. Other roles: Naïade and Echo in Ariadne auf Naxos, Greta Fiorentino in Street Scene, Natalie/Valencienne in The Merry Widow.
