Penny Fuller, Lorna Dallas

Sharing stories from different stages of her life , we got to know this delightful performer. From her beginnings in a small town in Southern Illinois, to meeting a madam in a New Orleans cathouse. She became the toast of the town in London playing while in many West End shows. That led her to be asked to perform in a Royal Command performances for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal family.

Lorna Dallas, Leigh Zimmerman

Lorna, had the audience spellbound as she sang Larry Grossman & Hal Hackaday ’s “Empty”. It was cut prior to opening of the 1970 Broadway show Minnie’s Boys. She also showed off her musical theater prowess as she sang Robert Wright and George Forrest’ “Stranger In Paradise” from Kismet and Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s “Hello Young Lovers”, from the King and I. Ms. Dallas was asked to star with Yule Brenner in King and I, but turned it down as she met her future husband and she had to make a choice. Would she become a star on Broadway or marry the love of her life?  She chose the latter and never regretted it.

What a treat to see and hear this theater legend.
