Just before the Judy Holliday-inspired Smart Blonde wrapped up its Off-Broadway run at 59E59 Theatres on April 13, leading lady Andréa Burns got a visit in the form of a miniature In the Heights reunion from former co-star and writer Lin-Manuel Miranda and director Thomas Kail. Burns previously starred alongside Miranda in his musical In the Heights, which opened on Broadway in 2008 under Kail's direction. The musical will soon be adapted into a feature film, due for release in 2020.
Burns portrayed Judy Holliday in Smart Blonde, Willy Holtzman's new play with music, directed by Peter Flynn, which charts Holliday's experiences from Greenwich Village to Broadway and beyond.
