About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest, Donna McKechnie, is a legendary star who exemplifies the meaning of the phrase “triple threat”, because she dances, acts and sings with equal perfection.
She is regarded internationally as one of Broadway’s foremost singing and dancing leading ladies, who will forever be remembered and adored for creating the iconic role of “Cassie” in “A Chorus Line”, earning her a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, as well as a Drama Desk Award and a Theatre World Special Award. She’s also starred on Broadway in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”, “The Education of Hyman Kaplan”, “On the Town”, “Promises, Promises”, “Company”, “The Visit”, “State Fair”, for which she won the Fred Astaire Award for Best Female Dancer, and a Drama Desk Award nomination, and “Sondheim: A Musical Tribute”, which she also choreographed.
She’s starred in numerous musical productions throughout the country and in London’s West End, including “Follies”, “Annie Get Your Gun”, Mack and Mabel”, “Gypsy”, “Can-Can”, “Pajama Game” and many more. She’s appeared in many TV shows including HBO Specials, the Tonight Show, “Fame”, “Cheers”, “Family Ties”, and who can ever forget her as “Amanda Harris” in “Dark Shadows”. And when she’s not busy choreographing a production, she frequently performs in concert with symphony orchestras, and on cabaret stages all over the country.
She was one of the stars in “FOUR GIRLS FOUR”, a wonderful concert series with Andrea McArdle, Faith Prince and Maureen McGovern
And if that weren’t enough, she wrote a poignant, intensely personal and compelling memoir, entitled, “Time Steps: My Musical Comedy Life”
