Debra Dickinson

From the dazzling dancing of Gwen Verdon to the stirring baritone of Alfred Drake, from the hilarious antics of Nathan Lane to the powerhouse energy of Patti LuPone, this course will explore the work and lives of the greatest stars of the American musical theater. It takes an unusual and profound talent to create the lead roles in the best Broadway shows, and these uniquely gifted performers have achieved the pinnacle of success in Broadway musicals.
