Photo Flash: Andrea McArdle and Daughter in TheatreWorks' BLOOD BROTHERS

Andrea McArdle and daughter Alexis Kalehoff  co-star as a mother and daughter in TheatreWorks' BLOOD BROTHERS in Naples, Florida. Performances run through March 20.

McArdle was nominated for a Tony Award as Best Lead Actress in a Musical for playing the title role in Broadway's ANNIE. She also appeared on Welcome Back Kotter, playing Arnold Horshack's younger sister. Her credits include Les Misérables (both on Broadway and in the national tour), Jerry's Girls (a revue of Jerry Herman songs co-starring Carol Channing and Leslie Uggams) Beauty and the Beast, Starlight Express, Meet Me In St. Louis, Wizard of Oz, They're Playing Our Song, and another celebrated Annie in Irving Berlin's classic, Annie Get Your Gun. She briefly appeared in the 1999 Rob Marshall-directed TV version of Annie, singing the "Star To Be" segment of the song "N.Y.C."

Her daughter, Alexis Kalehoff, has starred on Broadway in Les Miserables.

Blood Brothers is one of the most powerful and haunting rags-to-riches tragedies of our time. The importance and the triumph of Blood Brothers is that it had the courage to tackle the Urban Blight of Thatcher's Britain. Its wonderful music helped Blood Brothers to run on Broadway for two years, get nominated for seven Tony Awards and win the Theatre World Award. The London production is still running today and is considered one of the top 50 musicals of all time.
