STAGE TUBE: MAMMA MIA!'s Judy McLane's Career Reaches New Heights...Literally!


Judy McLane recently took a VIP ride with the U.S. Navy's Blue Angel Flight Demonstration Team in the F/A-18 Super Hornet as part of the Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) Key Influencer Rider Program. Judy was chosen for this flight because she is recognized as a Key Influencer of young Americans in the community. Judy, whose father was a Marine, was a perfect fit for the program, which is intended to raise awareness and increase recruitment in the Navy and Marine Corps. Check out a video of her flight below!

This October will mark a decade since Judy McLane joined the cast of Mamma Mia! on Broadway. She is currently starring as Donna in Mamma Mia! after 7 1/2 years as Tanya. Other Broadway credits include Kiss of the Spider Woman, Aspects of Love, and Chess. Her national and international tours include, the Baker's Wife inInto the Woods, the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat co-starring with Donny Osmond, Mrs. Baskin in Big, and Side By Side By Sondheim, directed by Rob Marshall.

Now celebrating 13 smash hit years and over 5,000 performances on Broadway at The Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street), Mamma Mia! is one of the most successful musicals of all time anywhere in the world and is one of only 5 musicals to have run for over 10 years on Broadway. Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs and directed by Phyllida Lloyd, Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer's vision of writer Catherine Johnson's sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolding on a tiny Greek island. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings 3 men from her mother's past back to the island they had last visited 20 years ago. Songs including "Dancing Queen," "The Winner Takes It All," "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me" are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.
