Jennifer Simard’s scene-stealing performance as a nun with a gambling addiction in Broadway’s Disaster! garnered the actress a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
For the first-time in Broadway history, Playbill was invited to live stream a show-stopping musical moment directly from the Nederlander Theatre.
“Saying goodbye to the show will be like saying goodbye to your best friend. It will be sad for all of us, but the joy that we’ve had is something you can’t take away, and I still maintain that this is part of life,” Simard told Playbill the day after she was nominated for the Tony Award.
The ’70s disco musical comedy was directed by Jack Plotnick, with a book by Seth Rudetsky and Plotnick.
