Can You Believe Another Year Has Passed????????????

                           Yes, girls, it has been a year since we last celebrated the birthday of still the Greatest Show Stopper In Broadway History, Donna McKechnie.

                             And now it is time to celebrate another!  Where does the time go?

                             Donna turns 76 today, and I know she could walk out tonight on any stage doing "A Chorus Line," and perform Cassie on a moment's notice.

                              Not to take anything away from Donna, but it bears mentioning how important this day is, in terms of Musical Theater. In addition to Donna, on this evening, in 1959, "The Sound Of Music" opened on Broadway, at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.  Then, twenty two years later, on this date, in 1981, at the then Alvin Theatre, a little something called "Merrily We Roll Along" opened.
What an auspicious day this is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                But Happy Birthday, and many more to Donna McKechnie!

                                God, she's a dancer!  A dancer dances!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
