"Many singers have lovely voices. Very few interpret lyrics the way they were meant to be sung. And Christine Andreas does just that.” While that compliment was paid by Hal David, we feel there is no greater introduction than that to the carismatic Christine Andreas, whose credits include the revivals of My Fair Lady, Oklahoma, On Your Toes, La Cage Aux Folles and the original companies of Legs Diamond, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and the first tour of The Light in the Piazza.
Christine pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she kept dodging Mister Abbott, what it was like being choreographed by Agnes DeMille, and why Legs Diamond has no legs.
Also, Christine shines the spotlight on Dina Merrill, George Rose, and Alan Jay Lerner!
