Susan Stroman Will Be Featured Tonight on NYC-ARTS

Additionally, Stroman reveals that while she has experienced sorrow in her life, the theater has been a positive place for her. "I have had a lot of loss in my life," explains Stroman. "But the theater has saved me and it fills me where I have had loss."

Stroman has earned five Tony Awards for choreography for the Gershwin musical Crazy For You, the 1994 revival of Show Boat, the dance musical Contact and The Producers, which also earned her a Tony for Best Direction. Coming up on her slate, Stroman is producing and choreographing a production of The Merry Widow at The Metropolitan Opera starring Renée Fleming.
