Growing up in the city, Orfeh attended New York City public schools. Immediately after graduation from a performing arts high school, she landed a record deal with EMI Records, headlining the early-1990s dance group Or-N-More. The group's self-titled album quickly went gold and the single "Everyotherday" climbed to #1 on the club music charts. Last year, Orfeh released her first solo album, What Do You Want From Me, which is available on iTunes and from Amazon.com. Orfeh became a household name to millions of people for her Tony-nominated role in the Broadway smash Legally Blonde, where she played the role of sassy hairdresser Paulette. But before that, Orfeh had her first acting gig on As the World Turns. She and husband Andy Karl, who currently stars as Fiyero in Wicked, reside in Manhattan.
