Show debut: "Josh Just Happens to Live Here!"
Other work: "3rd Rock From the Sun", "That 70's Show"


I hope the costumes support the regular life and the fantasy musical part of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Rebecca goes into these musical comedy sequences that are a heightened mental state and in those they get kind of wacky.
