It all started in kindergarten when a teacher sent a note home to Michelle Lipman’s parents expressing concern about her shyness. Her mother’s guilt sank in, so she was enrolled in all types of classes that would force interaction with other children, including voice and acting.
“This was the beginning of what would become my passion, my love, my life and career path,” says Lipman, who now goes by Nicolette Hart.
After intensive training for a bachelor in fine arts degree in musical theater at the University at Buffalo and making it on Broadway in productions such as Legally Blonde, Hart is back in her hometown of Penfield, married to a boy she knew in her youth with a business in Rochester training young actors and actresses. She is among many area entrepreneurs who decided to return home after national and international fame, choosing to grow a business in the Rochester region.
