Hello. I happened upon this article in the NY Daily News website. from RC in Austin, Texas

Natalie Cortez (A Chorus Line)
"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

Cortez shows off her soft but forceful falsetto.

Huh?

Well, it seems as though the rest of the original cast will leave at the end of July.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Was this article written by a highschooler? Did they see the show? They saw her costume obviously... and it's not silly, it's a classic Broadway costume... do they see how some dancers dress today?

Interesting things that she says, but it's not very long... not very informative... and she has no falsetto, so clearly this writer knows nothing about the female voice, or Broadway, or the human singing voice at all... and she doesn't dance at all in either of her numbers, really... in the rest of the show, she owns the rest of the cast... but...

ew.

ps. I think Natalie gives one of the most beautiful and realized performances on Broadway today and press on her is what that lady needs! Just... preferably good press.

Is she in talks for the Revival of West Side next year?
that's a really big mic...

The article was completely bland and uninformative. They could have asked her so many interesting questions.
She sounds like a nice girl though and even if she's no Priscilla Lopez, I do enjoy her. She'd make a fierce Anita.

she's played Maria before, and the little bit of her soprano that is exhibited in ACL totally sold me. She could bring an inner fierceness to Maria that no one has before... I mean... Laurents is supposedly completely re-vamping it.
that's a really big mic...

I thought she was one of the strongest links in that cast. She was amazing.

Agreed, I thought she was one of the best parts of the show. And now that you mention it I can totally see her in West Side Story!
