A Day With Leanne Cope, Star of Broadway's An American in Paris

Behind the scenes at the Palace Theatre, you'll find hundreds of toe shoes and the ghost of Judy Garland.

Tony nominee Leanne Cope took TheaterMania on a tour of her stomping grounds at the Palace Theatre, where she stars as Lise Dassin in the hit Gershwin musical An American in Paris. Watch as she shows us around her thoroughly decorated dressing room (fulfilling her lifelong dreams of a bedroom all her own), before demonstrating her glamorous daily routine of bludgeoning her toe shoes by the side of the Broadway stage. Ballerinas may look delicate, but as it turns out, that's just theater magic at work.
