Donna McKechnie

July 12, 2022

Today, I am so happy to announce my episode with Broadway legend Donna McKechnie, star of A Chorus Line, On the Town, State Fair, Promises, Promises, and Company. Tune in today to hear her share some of the insights of her legendary career, including the difference between Bob Fosse and Michael Bennett, the replacement of the choreographer in How To Succeed, touring with Ethel Merman, the story of her iconic “Tick Tock” dance, the many versions of Cassie that were proposed along the way, the monologue she had that was cut from A Chorus Line, tricks for surviving New York in the 70s, choreographing Sondheim: A Musical Tribute, dancing on TV in Hullabaloo, and so much more.

 

You won’t want to miss this fascinating conversation with a star whose dancing epitomizes the Golden Age of Broadway.
