ANNIE SCHIFFMANN (Cast, Social Media Manager) Annie Schiffmann knew she had to be in Broadway’s Next Hit Musical from the first time she saw it and is so pleased to call herself a cast member. In the time between when she first saw the show and when she was cast, she has performed in Chicago City Limits’ Touring Company and Resident Company, been in commercials - oh, and got married and had two kids. She mostly improvises in a corporate setting now - whether hosting an awards night, leading an improv workshop, or performing onstage for your company’s big meeting. She is fearless onstage yet is afraid of the Butterfly Room in the Museum of Natural History. She can be found on Twitter @annieschiff.
