Most recently, Heidi has continued her relationship with Disney Theatricals developing their new musical version of FREAKY FRIDAY playing mom/daughter, Katherine/Ellie (Helen Hayes Award nomination). FREAKY FRIDAY is written by the NEXT TO NORMAL Pulitzer Prize winning team, Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, along with book writer Bridget Carpenter from TV’s PARENTHOOD and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS and directed by this year’s Tony Award winner, Christopher Ashley.

Heidi has appeared in many concerts at The 92nd Street Y in their Lyrics and Lyricists series including concerts showcasing the work of Sondheim/Prince, Burton Lane and Vernon Duke.
