In June and November 2016, I played the lead role of Iris in the readings of a fabulous new musical by four-time Richard Rodgers award winner, Andrew Gerle. We worked on a lot of changes and I got to see the show grow and take shape. My character even had her name change from Doris to Iris (which means "rainbow" in Greek). The show was directed by two-time Tony Award nominee, John Carrafa (Urinetown, Into the Woods) and based on the book by Arnold Lobel, author of the beloved Frog and Toad series. Enjoy these photos of our all-Broadway company and check in often to learn more about how the show is progressing.
