Surprise, Surprise!

After a terrific run of 42nd St. at the Fireside, my plan was to come back to New York and take a short break from auditioning/performing to get back into class and really work on my technique. But the universe had other plans!

I got a call over Thanksgiving weekend that the New York company of Altar Boyz was going to be short-handed for the next few weeks and needed an extra swing. So I'm now over at New World stages "praising the Lord with funk and rhyme" every night. It's great to be doing this show again, if only for a little while.


I just started rehearsal today for Will Rogers' Follies at the Reagle Players. It's really great to be back at this theatre again. Eileen Grace is directing/choreographing (I worked with her last year in Crazy for You and No No, Nanette.) She knows this show inside and out because she was with the show from the workshop all the way through its three-year run on Broadway. On top of all that, she's a pleasure to work with.

This is going to be a great show. It's all the original choreography. The cast (which includes Sarah Pfisterer from Broadway's Phantom of the Opera and Scott Wahle from CBS Boston's Morning News) is incredibly talented. And let's not forget all the gorgeous show girls! We're having a great time, and I'm sure the audiences will too.
