SHOWS: In Trousers, 42nd Street (2000), Oklahoma (2019)

For over forty years New York audiences have had the great pleasure of watching three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa light up the stage with her brilliant work in such shows as In Trousers, Barnum, The Rink, On The Town, 42nd Street, Xanadu, Oklahoma, Marie Christine, Queen of the Mist, and First Daughter Suite, amongst so many more. Now, Mary sits down with Rob and Kevin to look back on her career, her triumphs, and an intimate conversation about her strength and desire to keep telling stories.

Mary pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she riffed in front of Stephen Sondheim (and how she got banned from some casting directors because of it), what it was like creating In Trousers, and why her ability to tell nothing but the truth has been her creative guiding light.

Also, Mary shines the spotlight on William Finn, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and Chita Rivera!
