In 1994, 22-year-old actress Jodie Langel was a wannabe Broadway star, receiving positive reviews for her performances on The Great White Way in a stellar production of “Les Miserables,” followed by national Broadway in America touring productions of “Cats” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” among other musicals.
