Show Reel Of The Week: Kirbi Jo Long
Kirbi Jo Long, give us your elevator pitch of who you are, what you do and what your skill set is.
I am a professional singer/actress with experience in productions and live bands.
What is your ideal role?
Playing myself in my own solo show.
Name your top 5 credits.
Divas 3, Agneta and Frida in the West End’s Abba Mania, Jubilee Singer/Vocal Captain, USO Show Troupe, Vegas the Show, Jean Ann Ryan Company Vocal Captain/Lead Vocalist.
What should TheatreArtLife readers know about you?
I believe it is important to stay true to yourself in the industry and choose the shows and the gigs that you want to do for yourself and not for someone else. I also believe it is important to have your foot in a few doors so that when one closes, you aren’t scrambling and the hustle of the industry doesn’t become too stressful.
Where do you find inspiration?
Other performers, my son Corbin is also a huge inspiration for my solo show which I currently perform on cruise ships as a guest entertainer.
What motivates you to continue performing/creating?
I have taken a short hiatus and know what it feels like to not have it in my life. I realized then that I was not fully happy if I wasn’t performing. Having that perspective keeps me in the game.
