Broadway Royalty

Three of 'em in the one audience tonight!

The lady in pink in the middle of the picture below is Sydney Anderson who appeared at the Palace as Mme. Renaud for the entire original Broadway run of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. Here she is at one of the many cast reunions over the years (that's Cady Huffman second from right).
Ms. Anderson has also appeared on Broadway in OKLAHOMA!, A BROADWAY MUSICAL and CHARLIE & ALGERNON. She liked our show muchly.
Gary Chryst has re- staged Ann Reinking's choreography for every production of CHICAGO around the world. He gave Nick Adams his first Broadway job and Oliver Thornton his first gig in the West End. He saw PRISCILLA in Australia and liked it even better here.
Mitzi Hamilton, who danced on Broadway in APPLAUSE and PIPPIN,  had cosmetic surgery and became the inspiration for the role of Val in A CHORUS LINE ("Tits and Ass"). Mitzi subsequently played the role in London and on Broadway and directed several companies of the show around the USA. She liked PRISCILLA heaps.
