BWW Review: Donna McKechnie Brings Joyful SAME PLACE ANOTHER TIME to LABWW Review: Donna McKechnie Brings Joyful SAME PLACE ANOTHER TIME to LA
by Don Grigware - May 30, 2017

Nobody does this better than Donna McKechnie, Tony Award winner for A Chorus Line, whose vibrant persona adds warmth to every moment that she is in our presence. To me she is practically the same off stage as on; maybe that's the key, just being your true joyful self. (more...)
