    S02E01– Maree Johnson (From Sydney to Broadway with Phantom)
    Doing the work, being good, really good, is what it takes. We talk a lot about ‘the dream’ but ultimately, it’s about talent, opportunity and hard work.
    Maree Johnson has had a 25-year relationship with Broadway’s longest-running musical Phantom of the Opera in Sydney, Melbourne and now Broadway. 
    Living in NYC, her whole family got Covid, and the Theater shut down means she won't perform again until at least May 2021…she came fresh from a singing class to join me on Take Fountain.
