‘Book of Mormon’ Breaks Box Office Records on the Road, Too

About Kath Walker

What made me want to work in the industry was actually the soundtrack to "August Rush". I am influenced by directors and such, but my other great passion is listening to music - and a soundtrack has the power to make or break a film! But hey, I'll see what happens... Twitter -
