In the Magic Show

If you are a musical theatre fan then “West End Avenue” and “Lion Tamer” are most likely embedded into your musical memory. Dale Soules was the originator of those two songs that dominated musical theatre wanna be’s in the 70’s. Stephen Schwartz’s The Magic Show was Soules third Broadway musical. She made her Broadway debut in the original HAIR. Soules followed that with the short lived Dude. Now Broadway veteran and two-time SAG Award winner Dale Soules has just been nominated for her third Screen Actors Guild Award in the category of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy for her work on the smash-hit Netflix series Orange Is The New Black.  Dale plays no-nonsense inmate Frieda Berlin who boasts neck tattoos and knows a lot about murder.  She is currently shooting Season 5 of the award-winning series.
