Richard Ridge was thrilled to speak with nearly all of them at the official Tonys Meet & Greet on April 30, 2014, and we will be bringing you special coverage on all of them leading up to the big night.
Today we continue our Tonys coverage with Linda Emond, a nominee for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Cabaret, who chats about how she originally turned down the role, why she loves playing the character, and more. Check out what she had to say below!
For this production, Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (director) and Academy Award nomineeRob Marshall (co-director/choreographer) have recreated their Tony-nominated direction and choreography from the 1998 Tony Award-winning production. Cabaret features a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. It is based on the play by John Van Drutenand stories by Christopher Isherwood.
