Legally Blonde

Elle Woods

OHMIGOD YOU GUYS! I had the privilege of playing Elle Woods in my final semester at Belmont University...talk about a DREAM! 

"Played in the performance reviewed by the sublimely talented Bryant (who very well seems to have been born to take on the role), Elle is confident and commanding, fashionable and fit and is brought to life onstage via the actor’s superb vocal performance, impressive dancing skills and unerring ability to deliver every line – in fact any line, no matter how inane or, conversely, vital to the plot – with conviction and authenticity. From her very first moment onstage, at the climax of the signature show-opening “Omigod You Guys,” to her show-ending valedictory address, Bryant’s Elle is always in her element, while almost always onstage and dressed in costumer Melissa Durman’s stylish pink ensembles, showing off her remarkable stage presence in the process. Likewise, In her big 11 o’clock number – “Legally Blonde” – Bryant virtually stops the show."

Ocean

"Ocean" in Ride the Cyclone

Street Theatre Company - Nashville, TN.

"Bryant’s performance as Ocean O’Connell Rosenburg (the type-A academic all-star and wannabe mean girl at St. Cassian’s) allows her to show off her considerable stage presence while delivering her musical numbers with enviable style and substance. Bryant builds upon the promise of her every earlier performance with this one, which easily could catapult her to stardom under different circumstances." - Jef Ellis, BroadwayWorld

"Dot" in Sunday in the Park with George

Belmont University Student-Directed Performance

“Sunday In the Park With George” is inspired by artist George Seurat and his painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte”. With book by James Lapine and music by Stephen Sondheim, the story follows George as he is deeply immersed in his painting. Dot has always been a dream of mine, and I feel so lucky to portray her character in this beautiful story.
