From a dancer and soloist in a 1970s Ashton Springer musical tour to Mrs. Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie on Broadway, Terry Burrell's career has been exciting, to say the least. Her joy very audibly bubbles over as she tells story after story from her Broadway career, with a focus on her experience in the original Broadway cast of Into the Woods. Listen as the star pulls back the curtain on the Sondheim show and beyond, including memories from understudying two roles, being on Broadway in Dreamgirls with her sister, and changing her name to be taken more seriously. Be sure to check out our show notes on for some sights to go with the sounds from today's episode, including backstage pictures from Dreamgirls, Into the Woods, and more!
