“Donna McKechnie still embodies the musical-theater ‘triple threat’ ideal:
she can belt and warble with the best of them, her acting is precise and appealing,
and her dancing remains expressive and beautifully shaped.”

                 - Chicago Reader

“With her bright, friendly voice, frisky body language and arsenal of
backstage anecdotes, Donna McKechnie is a performer without pretensions.”

                       – The New York Times

xxAudiences will not want to miss this one-woman theatre extravaganza from legendary Broadway star, Donna McKechnie. Centenary Stage Company is proud to welcome this true triple threat performer to present her one woman cabaret show, My Musical Comedy Life on Saturday March 16th at 8 p.m. It is an autobiographical musical celebration of song, dance, and storytelling, with music by some of Broadway’s most celebrated composers, including Stephen Sondheim, Marvin Hamlisch, Cy Coleman, and Rodgers and Hammerstein, as well as more contemporary composers, like Ann Hampton Callaway.

Donna McKechnie - "My Musical Comedy Life"The Tony Award-winning star of A Chorus Line is regarded internationally as one of Broadway’s foremost dancing and singing leading ladies. McKechnie has performed extensively on the concert stage, in cabaret, with symphony orchestras, and now brings her talents to the Centenary Stage.
Her cabaret show, My Musical Comedy Life, which received unanimous raves from New York theater critics, won a Mac Award Nomination for Best Female Singer and the Backstage Bistro Award for Outstanding Major Engagement.

McKechnie talks and sings about her life and career which began when Bob Fosse put her in the chorus of the 1960 production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. In between were several legendary collaborations with Michael Bennett which included the 1976 classic A Chorus Line, in which she drew on her own experience to play an aging dancer desperate for a comeback. In this autobiographical one-woman show, the red-haired, apple-cheeked McKechnie interweaves memories of her career with selections from a vast repertoire including "The Music and the Mirror," her signature routine from A Chorus Line.
