Silver Lake on Sesame Street!

Building upon and adding to her ever-growing list of accomplishments, the first Queen of Silver Lake, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph is now an official character on Sesame Street! As I wrote in this space before, Leslie is known to many throughout Silver Lake for her performance of The Wizard of Oz using only sockmonkeys. She subsequently appear in Disney's Johnny and the Sprites, and has now rocketed onto Sesame Street, where she will be the first new female cast character since 1991. She will be playing the character “Abby Cadabby” beginning on August 14th, and you can see her spend her first day at school with Mrs. Goose on August 15th. In the coming weeks you can see her presenting the letter “I” with T.R. Knight from Grey's Anatomy. Congrats, Leslie!
