Spotlight on: Barrett Wilbert Weed

Barrett Wilbert Weed is probably my second favorite actress (coming up right after Phillipa Soo). She is best known for her role as Veronica in Heathers the musical. She has great acting chops and a killer belt. Other roles that she has performed include: (Understudy) Lysistrata Jones, (Nadia) Bare, (Sally Bowles) Cabaret, and (Denise) Found. Her most recent role is as Janice in Mean Girls, heading to Broadway. Barrett can also be seen performing in many online videos with songs such as, “Push Up My Glasses” and “I Could Be Jewish For You.”

Though I did not have the opportunity to watch her performances as they happened, I have seen snippets of Heathers and have poured over that soundtrack more times than I can count. Her voice is powerful and emotional and amazing. It conveys so much in every line. She has earned her place as one of my favorite actresses.
