She was offered to work in LA by Louis Gonda and Kelly who were the investors of Grey Gardens(2006). It was a musical version of Grey Gardens, a 1975 movie.
Her career in Hollywood started when she gathered some finance and produced a short movie. Taylor had a ton of connection during her theatre production which was a huge help later on.
