I had a fantastic time playing Doria Hudson in Smile: The Musical at the New Studio on Broadway! You can check out more photos here: https://www.facebook.com/TessERichie
Last night was the final performance of our four show weekend and we were lucky enough to have the original dance captain of the Broadway version come to our show. It was amazing to hear her tell of the process of putting the show together in Baltimore and then moving to Broadway. Before Smile opened on Broadway Michael Bennet and Tommy Tune were brought in to make revisions but the show still was still a flop.
Our cast had a great time working on this challenging material with the direction of Kyle Fabel and choreography of Barry McNabb!
