You don’t mess with a Broadway diva as Patti Lupone recently showed when she grabbed a cell phone from a texting audience member. For as long as Broadway has been around, the leading ladies of the stage have demanded respect and garnered a fierce loyalty among their fans.
Starting September 22, we put these ladies in the spotlight in “Divas of Broadway” taught by Debra Dickinson who was a professional actress in New York for 17 years. We will be highlighting their professional and personal lives and how their contributions have made the Great White Way shine that much brighter.
From Julie Andrews to Gwen Verdon, let us know who’s your favorite Broadway diva.
