Following small parts in Lincoln Center repertory productions, Danner landed the supporting role of Jill Tanner, the free-spirited love interest, in Leonard Gershe's new comedy Butterflies Are Free.
The play premiered Oct. 21, 1969, at the Booth Theatre. The production also marked the Broadway composing debut of a young Stephen Schwartz (credited in the Playbill as Steve), who penned the title song.
Clive Barnes of the New York Times closed his review with praise of Danner, calling her "a new young actress in the grand mannerism of Sandy Dennis, Julie Harris and all those predecessors who have made jaded, critical hearts beat a little faster...a young lady at the commencement of a big future."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
