I host an impromptu surprise birthday party for the lovely and talented mezzo-soprano Caitlin Burke. Ms. Burke has played in eleven of the grand character women’s roles with NYGASP, New York’s Gilbert and Sullivan Players, including “Patience” and their current offering, the little-seen “Ruddigore” currently opening this weekend at Hunter College’s Danny & Sylvia Kaye Playhouse, 695 Park Avenue.
The indefatigable Ms. Burke has also just returned from a two-year tour of “The Sound of Music” playing the Mother Abbess, under Jack O’Brien’s direction, and has founded her own theater company “The House of Murgatroyd” which will be making its New York debut next season, after successfully playing in England.
