Piazza Star Victoria Clark Will Next Head Back East for Dream True and Baby

News   Piazza Star Victoria Clark Will Next Head Back East for Dream True and Baby Victoria Clark, who is currently at work on reprising her role in The Light in the Piazza for Chicago's Goodman Theatre, will next head back to New York to perform in Dream True and Baby in March.

The actress, known for her turns on Broadway in Titanic and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, told Playbill On-Line that she is slated to take part in a concert of the Ricky Ian Gordon-Tina Landau musical Dream True — part of the CooperArts series at the Great Hall at Manhattan's Cooper Union. Dream True is inspired by the George du Maurier novel "Peter Ibbetson," which spans fifty years in the lives of two childhood friends, traveling from Wyoming to New York City. The two boys share the ability to communicate through dreams.

Ted Sperling will serve as musical director for the concert which features Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations.

Clark also mentioned that she has been contacted to reprise her role in the revised version of Baby for New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse, March 31-May 9. The actress performed in October 2003 readings of the new take on the 1983 Broadway musical by David Shire, Richard Maltby Jr. and Sybille Pearson about three couples and their prospects of having a baby. Mark S. Hoebee directed the readings and is expected to also helm the Paper Mill staging.
