Use the restroom before you go in. The show is 95 minutes with no intermission. The theater rule is if you go out during the show you can't go back in.

Description

WaterTower Theatre is renowned for holding open auditions for each production so it’s highly unusual for Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin to pre-select talent months before the scheduled performance. But that’s exactly what he did for this iconic role previously played by Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett on Broadway.

“From the moment I saw Diana’s work it was clear that she was gifted,” says Martin. “She’s an exceptionally skilled actor and singer, and that’s exactly what we needed to carry this show.”

According to Diana, when Martin let her know he was thinking of producing the show and asked if she was interested in the lead role, she jumped at the opportunity. Why her enthusiasm for this particular role? “Two words,” emphasizes Diana. “Stephen. Sondheim.”
