She held one of Seventy-Six trombones, she heard about Hugo and Kim during The Telephone Hour, and she got to Sail Away with Elaine Stritch. She is Patti Mariano one of the Golden Age’s busiest child actors having appeared in the original productions of The Music Man, Bye Bye Birdie, Sail Away, I Had A Ball, George M, Godspell, Rags, The Full Monty, and the 2001 production of 42nd Street.
Patti pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how Mickey Rooney was the perfect star, what it was like sharing the stage with Robert Preston and Barbara Cook, and why she became an integral force in the preservation of American Musical Theatre dance!
Also, Patti shines the spotlight on Meredith Wilson, Chita Rivera, Buddy Hackett, and Lee Theodore!
