Playbill.com's series features actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they are looking forward to and more. Here, via email, we hear from Tony winner Debbie Gravitte, who is offering her All-Star Holiday Show Dec. 8 at The Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts and Dec. 14 at Connecticut's Ridgefield Playhouse.
What show recently impressed you?
Since I am a working concert person with three children and can never seem to go to the theatre, this is a difficult question. The last show I saw was Catch Me If You Can. I was bowled over by Aaron Tveit, and I had never seen Norbert Leo Butz, which was an experience in itself.
What production are you most excited to see?
I admit that I am dying to see Book of Mormon.
What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
I really wanted to do Anything Goes. Just a role that I love, but alas, that overly talented girl got it!.……And I do think I can say that I am now ready to tackle Mama Rose.
What are your current/upcoming projects?
On the concert stage, I am touring all over (including Malaysia) doing a show called Bond and Beyond, where I get to sing all those great James Bond tunes, along with my other great Broadway concerts. I also have an opportunity to be involved with a new show, which I am completely excited about, but as of this moment, I cannot say anything more. Put it this way: It would get me closer to coming back to Broadway, which I've missed being a part of more than I can say. Aren't you intrigued???
