She celebrates her return to New York with a new club act featuring her share of Stephen Sondheim's songs, songs she has created, songs from favorite roles and some wonderful original material - joined by musical director Shelly Markham and her long time Company friend Pamela Myers. Harold Prince was quoted as saying of Teri "that's the best voice I've ever heard" and she is often referred to as one of Sondheim's "babies."
Teri's association with Sondhem has continued over the years, having performed or directed 11 of his works. She directed and performed in Side-By-Side-By-Sondheim with Peggy Lee and has performed Sally in three productions of Follies - one that she also directed featuring Harvey Evans, Kurt Peterson, Julie Wilson, Betty Garrett and John Raitt. She played Mama Rose in Gypsy, Yvonne in Sunday In The Park With George and has appeared in Putting It Together and a new Sondheim revue Moving On.
As a soloist with Michael Feinstein, she performed with the New Mexico Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Hollywood Bowl, and is featured on 5 original cast albums. Teri has appeared in many television shows as well. Since her return to New York this past year, she has done a workshop of Natural Woman with Michael Blakemore, Hats! The Musical (also in Denver), Bajour at the York Theatre's Musical in Mufti and a workshop of a new musical Unbeatable which is to open in New York next Fall.
