Playbill.com's series features actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they're looking forward to and more.

Here, via email, we hear from Broadway singing actress Elizabeth Stanley, who will be among the 25 stars taking part in Town Hall's Broadway by the Year Series May 12 at 8 PM featuring The Broadway Musicals of 1965-1989.

What show recently impressed you?
Buyer and Cellar! I have seen it with both Michael Urie and Christopher Hanke. They are both hilarious and charming in ways unique to each of them. They make memorizing a 90-minute dialogue with oneself look easy (and sane)! Jonathan Tolins is a witty genius.

What production are you most excited to see?
Violet! Just got tickets today!! Weeeee!

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
Hmmmm. Cry-Baby? I mean, who remembers that one? I'd like to be a drape and magically be able to dance like they do.



What are your current/upcoming projects?
In addition to Broadway by the Year on 5/12, I've got a summer of stocking! I'll be in the Berkshires for the bulk of it as Kate in Kiss Me, Kate at Barrington Stage Co. Then a quick stay in Pittsburgh to play Grizabella (meow!) and Lady of the Lake at PCLO.
