She was the original Susan in the off-Broadway production of Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick… BOOM! She notably played Sally in Reefer Madness The Movie Musical, and most recently guest starred on “Chicago Med.” According to Theater Pizzazz, “Amy Spanger is a bit of a throwback. She’s hard boiled, yet tender, like a thirties Ginger Rogers showgirl, with a modern, Idina Menzel-like belt, hitting crescendos with a punch.”
