BROADWAY STARS COME TO OZ

Published on 10th Jun, 2010

BROADWAY STARS COME TO OZBroadway Tony-Award winning star Donna McKechnie enjoyed one of her greatest triumphs as Sally, in the acclaimed revival of the Stephen Sondheim – James Goldman musical, Follies, in the spring of 1998. “She defined the art of torch singing with ‘Losing My Mind,’ raved Variety, joining the New York Times and other critics in unstintingly praising her performance. She is now coming to Australia for the first time.

Ms. McKechnie’s Broadway credits include: How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Sondheim – A Musical Tribute (which she also choreographed), On The Town, Promises, Promises!, Company and State Fair, for which she received the Fred Astaire Award for Best Female Dancer for the 1996 season. In London’s West End she starred in Promises, Promises, Company, No Way To Treat A Lady (which she also choreographed), Cole Porter’s Can-Can and Sondheim’s Follies.

Ms. McKechnie is very excited to be coming to Melbourne and Sydney, having never performed in Australia.
