The production went on to receive nominations and wins at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards, the WhatsOnStage Awards, and the Oliviers. After returning to the US, Samantha went on to tour with SIX the Musical and made stops at The Citadel Theatre in Canada, and The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Minnesota before landing on Broadway in the early spring of 2020.Samantha’s TV credits include: “Chicago PD” (NBC), and ads for Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Purina, and T-Mobile.
