After an Aug. 31 concert with the Cape Symphony Orchestra at the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce, Noll will star as Kathleen in the world premiere of a new musical by Mildred Kayden (score) and Thomas Babe (book) at Primary Stages. Entitled Call the Children Home, the musical mystery will begin performances Sept. 12 and run through Oct. 13. Primary Stages is located in New York City at 354 W. 45th Street; call (212) 333 4052 for tickets and information.
In November, Noll will head to Goodspeed Opera in Chester, CT, to headline a revised version of Stephen Schwartz's The Baker's Wife. Noll will play Genevieve, the role originated by Patti LuPone, and will get the chance to sing such Schwartz classics as "Where Is the Warmth?," "Gifts of Love" and "Meadowlark." The Baker's Wife will play the Norma Terris Theatre Nov. 7 through Dec. 1. For tickets, call the theatre's box office at (860) 873-8668.
The busy actress-singer also has several concert dates scheduled after her Baker's Wife run, including stops in Seattle (Dec. 4-8 with the Seattle Symphony) and Iowa (Dec. 31 with the Des Moines Symphony).
