Some things are a big deal! Some people are!
Terri White is!
Terri opens tonight in a starring role in a new Broadway musical. A revival of the 1947 success Finian’s Rainbow.
Tuesday a major article appeared on page 1 of the N.Y. Region section of the New York Times. It was about our Terri White!
The article is written by Susan Dominus. Interestingly, I knew her mother.
The story basically traces Terri’s early Broadway successes, then her fall into poverty, her becoming a homeless person and sleeping in Washington Square Park. Then Terri’s trip to Key West last year and a job singing at the Keys Piano Bar.
While singing in Key West, she met my dear friend Donna Barnett. They fell in love. They are being united in a partnership marriage Sunday on the stage of the Broadway theater where Terri is appearing.
Love them both!
But this is more Terri’s story. Success, a fall and then a climb back to the heights.
Of Terri’s singing in Finian’s Rainbow, Susan Dominus describes it as “…one of the crucial moments in musical theater.”
Good luck tonight, Terri! Break a leg!
And good luck to both Terri and Donna Sunday when they marry! And for the rest of their lives!
