to say goodbye to theater forever. “This opportunity has really made me feel like I want to pursue acting as well,” Ashley told OK! at the birthday party for Tony-winning producer Adam Epstein at NYC hotspot One Little West 12th. “I’ve never done it before and I’m having a lot of fun.”

I think I’m done.”
