Tony Nominee to Appear at ULM
Tony Award nominee Andrea McArdle, creator of the title character in the beloved musical Annie and star of Cabaret, Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables, and Starlight Express, will appear in the upcoming TheatreWorksULM production of Lysistrata. McArdle will appear with local performers (playing the comedy's title role), visit classes, and participate in an "Inside The Actors Studio" session open to the general public.
