Flashback Friday: Sierra Boggess Had Successful Trial Run With The Secret Garden
Boggess is poised to take the role of Lily to Broadway, all thanks to this performance at David Geffen Hall.
Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon's Tony-nominated musical The Secret Garden is slated for a long-awaited Broadway revival, anticipated to hit the stage at some point next season. Details still aren't confirmed, but earlier this week we got some hopeful news indicating that things are progressing as planned.
An exciting company of Broadway favorites have been cast in the show's pre-Broadway lab, including Sierra Boggess, who, if you remember, already made audiences at David Geffen Hall sob with her performance as Lily, which she performed for Manhattan Concert Productions and will now be reprising. If you missed it (or you have a foggy memory), here are some clips from the concert version, which also featured The Secret Garden's original Mary, Daisy Eagan, a pre-Tony-winning Ben Platt, and a tiny Sydney Lucas.
