Murphy, who made her Broadway debut earlier this year in Burn the Floor, is currently scheduled to appear in the San Jose and San Diego engagements of the tour. "So You Think You Can Dance" winners and finalists Robbie Kmetoni, Ashleigh Di Lello & Ryan Di Lello, Karen Hauer and Janette Manrara will be joining her on stage during these engagements as featured dancers. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

Mary Murphy is a U.S. Ballroom Dance Champion and an Austrian National 10-dance and Ballroom Champion. In addition to owning Champion Ballroom Academy in San Diego, she is a partner in the "Chance to Dance" program in the San Diego area school district, helping provide dance classes to children unable to afford lessons.

Years before "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance" turned ballroom dancing into must-see TV, Burn the Floor was finding success live on stage. The 2009 Broadway run was extended twice.
