Making History with the Hasty Pudding

Ashley was one of the first six women, and the first ever black woman, to be cast in Hasty Pudding Theatricals. Hasty Pudding is the third oldest theater group in the world and is renowned for its original comedy musicals. For nearly 200 years, it produced shows featuring all male casts. In 2019, Ashley made history starring as Princess Theresa in their original production "France, France Revolution." Her role was a spoof of the classic damsel in distress. Ashley sang the show's 11 o'clock number "Head Over Heels" every night to nearly sold out audiences in Boston, New York City, and Bermuda during the 40 show run. In 2019 Hasty Pudding honored actors Bryce Dallas Howard, Milo Ventimiglia, and Marc Anthony. The cast roasted these actors as part of the show. Moreover, every show ended with a 15-minute long dance number. Ashley was honored to be part of this historic moment for women in theater.
