BWW Interviews: It's LESLIE UGGAMS Turn as Momma Rose in GYPSY
by Ryan Kilpatrick - Jun 30, 2014

He has stood out in roles at CT Rep's My Fair Lady, The Music Man and Man of LaMancha as well as in Yale Rep'sAmerican Night, but really shines here. He conveys real affection for his uncle, admiration for Al and somehow manages to be engaging without getting in the way of the veterans. (more...)
