Broadway Ladies: Ms. April 2013: Patina Miller
DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN THIS WEEK'S "HOT OR NOT" POLL
FEATURING THE ENSEMBLE OF PIPPIN!
MS. BROADWAY APRIL 2013
WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: By all acounts so far, she's handling an iconic role with flare, style and a stamp all of her own - all of the things I look for in a Ms. Broadway! Theatre fans got their first glimpse of Patina Miller when she sang "Aquarius" in Hair in Central Park. She left that production to play the lead in Sister Act, first in London and then on Broadway. For her efforts, Ms. Miller earned a Best Actress in a Musical Tony nomination. Now she's back on Broadway in Diane Paulus' regionally acclaimed revival of Pippin as The Leading Player, a role made into a Tony-winning Broadway legend by theatre icon Ben Vereen. Can Tony glory be far behind for Ms. Broadway April 2013? We'll find out soon enough!
