BWW TV: Behind the Scenes of FOREVER DUSTY with Kirsten Holly Smith- Transforming Into a Music Icon!

The world premiere of Forever Dusty, a new musical about the life and times of legendary icon Dusty Springfield is currently playing at off-Broadway's New World Stages. Kirsten Holly Smith, who takes on the title role 8 times a week, transforms into the music icon daily, and BroadwayWorld takes you behind the scenes of her process below!

Along with Smith, Forever Dusty will feature Sajous (Spider-Man, American Idiot), Coleen Sexton (Jekyll and Hyde, Wicked National Tour), Benim Foster (Barefoot in the Park, Twelve Angry Men), Sean Patrick Hopkins (Forever Plaid, Angels in America), Ashley Betton (Peep Show, Midsummer Night's Dream) and Jonathan C. Kaplan (Falsettos, Diary of Anne Frank).

With her towering blonde beehive, spectacular outfits, and most of all, her unforgettable, soulful voice, Dusty Springfield became the first great female pop star of the 1960s. But how did a shy, awkward Catholic schoolgirl with the cumbersome name of Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, transform herself into an icon for a generation?

Forever Dusty tells the compelling and moving story of Dusty's journey, in a dramatic, high-energy musical filled with some of the most exciting pop songs ever written, including "Son of a Preacher Man," "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," "The Look of Love," and many others.
