SIX Composer Toby Marlow Steps into the Role of Catherine Parr for Two Performances
The principal actress who plays Parr, Maiya Quansah-Breed, was on vacation. Both standbys were out of the production due to illness, and the other understudy was covering the role of Jane Seymour for the day.
Both shows on July 28, which featured Marlow as Catherine Parr, were presented in concert form.
Marlow took to Twitter to thank the fans, the audience, and the cast, for their support.
