Award-winning actress, Kimiko glenn, tells the audio edition of Lindsay Jill Roth’s novel, âWHAT ARE PRETTY GIRLS MADE OFâ. Blackstone Audio released the audiobook today, November 17, 2021, which was originally published by Simon & Schuster’s Pocket Star imprint.
Glenn is an American Broadway actress, singer and performer best known for her role as Brook Soso in the award-winning Netflix series “ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK”, which won her three Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series. .
Glenn is one of the most prominent voices in animation today, voicing the lead role in Nickelodeon’s “BABY SHARK” as “Baby Shark.” His latest feature film “MY LITTLE PONY: A NEW GENERATION” has just been released on Netflix and was the No. 1 film in the world in its first week. In 2019, she voiced Peni Parker in the Oscar feature film “SPIDERMAN: INTO THE SPIDERVERSE”.
In her Broadway debut, Glenn created the role of “Dawn” in “WAITRESS” by Sara Bareillas. Her nuanced performances of all character types are perfect for expressing the depth and humor of âWHAT JOLIE GIRLS ARE MADE OF,â the thinly veiled revealer that takes place behind the scenes of the fierce world of high-end makeup. While this cosmetics company does not test on animals, it is certainly not cruelty-free.
Roth said of Glenn’s casting: âI admired Kimiko’s work from my couch all the way to seeing her on stage, her voice always resonating with me as one of such versatility. ‘she brought to life the characters that I spent so much time creating. They sound better in her voice than in my head, and the audio world is going to be such a treat. “
Roth and Glenn will be hosting a virtual book club in the coming months, where attendees can answer their questions live with the author and actress.
