What show recently impressed you?
Jesus Christ Superstar...I thought the cast was outstanding...Paul Nolan's voice definitely comes from heaven...and Des McAnuff's thrilling direction...I was totally devastated by the whipping scene..and I know the story...!!!! We all need to be nicer to each other.
What production are you most excited to see?
Hands on a Hardbody...I love PHISH...and Amanda Green!!!!
What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
I Do! I Do!...the role of Agnes...opposite Brian Stokes Mitchell!!! I saw the OBC in 1965...fell in love with the score and the role! And, can we talk about Brian Stokes...a leading lady's dream come true!!!!
What are your current/upcoming projects?
Next to abnormal at The Metropolitan Room all four Sundays in October! It's about growing up in NYC in what I thought was a normal childhood...Our house on the Upper West Side was politically and culturally off-the-charts exciting with family friends like Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, so I thought it would be fun to share some these stories...oh, yes...and a few songs!!!!
