Lea Thompson continues in the role through July 9. Shindle is scheduled for engagements in the United States and Canada.
Most recently, Shindle understudied the role of Lucy in Jekyll and Hyde, and comes to the Cabaret tour direct from Broadway.
No stranger to the road, Shindle received her degree in theatre from Northwestern University in June 1999 after logging 20,000 miles a month working as an AIDS activist in her capacity as Miss America. Her theatre credits include Into the Woods (Witch), City of Angels (Bobbi/Gabby), Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (narrator), Anything Goes (Reno) and Children of Eden (Yonah). The national touring production of Cabaret opened in March, 1999 in Los Angeles.
