Since marrying her college sweetheart Sam, Rachel Bles now splits her time between New York City and Toronto. She still misses her Texas roots though, and is always looking for the best Mexican food on the East Coast. She is a proud alumna of Interlochen Arts Academy, Rice University, and New York University Steinhardt.
Rachel has continued to take her career to new heights…literally! She spent a year playing Glinda in the national tour of The Wizard of Oz, flying into cities all across North America. Rachel’s portrayal of the good witch received much critical acclaim including this statement from The Boston Globe, “Rachel’s Glinda is a gas, about as far from Billie Burke’s queenly imperiousness as you can get. Saucy and snarky, blending elements of Kristin Chenoweth’s Galinda from “Wicked’’ with traces of Elizabeth Banks’s Avery Jessup from “30 Rock,’’ Womble’s Glinda appears to be vying for a name change to Glinda the Bad Witch, or at least the Naughty Witch.” Broadway World also said, “Rachel proved to be a fantastic singer, and gave a performance that’s quite perfect for the picture-perfect goodie-goodie Glinda.”
Favorite regional roles include Philia in Forum, Audrey Williams in Hank Williams: Lost Highway under the direction of Tony-nominated Randal Myler, and Nellie in South Pacific. On the small screen, you can see her national television debut on Law and Order: SVU. On an even smaller screen, you can check out the web series Rachel co-created for Instagram under the handle @MollyPip.TV. Being on both sides of the camera has been one of the most fulfilling experiences to date.
