Judy Holliday lays down a series of tracks about her rise to fame amidst the politics of the 1950s. Memory and song converge as the “dumb blonde” with a genius IQ charts her experience from Greenwich Village to Broadway and beyond with notable show business alums, including Leonard Bernstein and Marilyn Monroe.
The design team includes Tony Ferrieri (scenic design); Alan Edwards (lighting design); Michael McDonald (costume design); and Joanna Lynn Staub (sound design). The Production Stage Manager is Stephanie Clark.
