Nikki Renee Hechavarria
"I'd put an advertisement in a trade paper to find a girl vocalist able to start in time for the new production in August 2008. I subsequently met Nikki in Derek Block's office in London.
We covered as much ground as we could but you never know really until anyone
starts performing. I needn't have worried, Nikki knew 'how to do it'
and became an instant hit.
She had been appearing in London in the Disney production of Lion King having transferred from the Canadian show - but had plenty of pop experience too, having worked in a Motown musical. Versatile and confident, I like that!
She'd been raised in Canada and is a hard worker, so she copes well with the demands of TBTD's tough touring schedule but hasn't lost any of her North American accent... If Nikki says it's it's Toosday it's Tuesday!"
