In What I Did for… a Job, J. Ms. Marcos humorously reveals her approach to auditioning for musicals and shares her unique journey in what it took to book 9 Broadway Shows.

“I had to learn to break the “rules” in order to be noticed and many of my audition pieces were practically cabaret acts. So, I put them all in a show,” says the Broadway vet.

Ms. Marcos will be joined by fellow Gettin’ the Band Back Together cast member Ryan Duncan along with some special cameos from her Broadway past and Mark Hartman will music direct.

Ms. Marcos was last seen stealing big laughs in Los Angeles in the 2017 CBS Diversity Showcase.
