Here you go, theatre and SVU lovers: Karen Olivo when she was a kid. She was probably 16 or so in this pic and looked thirty and my friends and I were, like, 11 and looked 5, so we were always in awe of whatever magic she used to look grown up.
I don’t remember who the other people are in the pic. It was a long time ago. I think this was Brigadoon.
