Hathaway is a Jersey Girl from Millburn who earned a Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star nomination for Best Performance by a High School Actress for her performance as Winnifred in “Once Upon a Mattress.” (I wonder what the winner is doing these days?) She also was cast in Paper Mills’  “Jane Eyre” and “Gigi.”

Hathaway previously performed in the Public’s 2009 staging of “Twelfth Night” as part of the Shakespeare in the Park program.

Taymor directed the brilliant production of “The Lion King” and the troubled staging of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” that ended in litigation.
