You can see them in Boston before they're stars
Just a note to say how pleased I am that Kate Baldwin - who I raved about in Boston productions of She Loves Me and The Three Musketeers - has landed her first Broadway lead, in Finian's Rainbow (like another Boston actress, Stephanie Umoh, who played in the revival of Ragtime). Congratulations to Ms. Baldwin (at left, with hunky Cheyenne Jackson), and Ms. Umoh, who both deserve even greater stardom. But the point is, gentle readers, that the folks in Boston productions often are, indeed, Broadway-worthy - in fact, they often actually end up on Broadway. So don't wait to pay top dollar in New York when you can see them right here, right now.
