Stritch and Peters stepped into the roles of Madame Armfeldt and daughter Desiree Armfeldt, succeeding Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury, respectively, on July 13 after a brief hiatus to allow for rehearsal time.

She is a two time Tony winner for outstanding performances in Song & Dance and Annie Get Your Gun. She has additionally been seen on Broadway in Mack & Mabel, On The Town, Sunday in the Park With George, The Goodbye Girl and Into the Woods.
