First I want to thank everyone for their kind remarks re. Emma's performance. She had such a great time at the event and felt very honored to have been able to perform. Thanks again, Julie, for giving her this great opportunity.
Re. heights. Emma's dad and I couldn't get over how tall she looks in those pictures next to all those petite former orphans and Annie's. Emma hovers around 5'1 and Sami is a few inches shorter, although I don't know her exact height. Emma is probably of average height for her age, or maybe even a little short, but as a child actress I guess she's getting tall. Katie Micha, who plays the balloon girl in Gypsy as well as June and Louise's understudy, is closer to Sami's height and she is a few weeks older than Emma.
