Eileen Faxas has had several careers across the country, but one thing has always been there.
“I’m a Miami girl now living in New York City, but my first career was as a television reporter – and my first two jobs were in Indiana,” she remarked. “I worked in Evansville at the then-new Fox station and then at the CBS station in South Bend!
“I saw my first leaf-changing-colors autumn in Indiana! And then I witnessed my first snow ever here! I also experienced near-death by freezing, or at least what seemed like near-death by freezing.
“I met so many great people in the Hoosier state that I still call friends to this day.”
And now, this talented Florida native returns to Indiana in the middle of winter to put some new “firsts” on her résumé. She makes her debut at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre in February, playing the iconic role of Grizabella in the upcoming production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats.
