Mazzie (Ragtime; Kiss Me, Kate; Next to Normal) will perform the National Anthem as the opener of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. It will be broadcast live nationwide from Yankee Stadium at 12:56 PM ET on NBC in the U.S. and CBC in Canada.
Mazzie will star as temperamental stage diva Helen Sinclair in Bullets Over Broadway, which begins performances March 11 at the St. James Theatre.
Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Scottsboro Boys, The Producers, Contact) directs and choreographs the musical that has been adapted by Allen from his 1994 film, which he co-wrote with Douglas McGrath. The musical incorporates pre-existing songs from the 1920's and 1930's for its score.
