New York City
In 1991 Daisy Eagan became the youngest female Tony Award winner (a distinction she still holds) for her turn as Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden. To many, she was living a dream, but for Daisy, childhood and stardom were both very complicated. For the interview portion of the evening, Daisy will share memories from the original The Secret Garden, discuss how being a part of that production sheltered her from tragic events in her own childhood and, 25 years later, what has drawn her back to the show in the out-of-town production that many hope will make it to Broadway. The evening will conclude with Daisy performing two (or more) songs with music director Drew Wutke.
