Ovation for Music Theatre Grad's Latest Broadway Star Turn

April 4, 2014

Ciara Renée '13 opened this week in the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin on Broadway, taking on the starring role of Leading Player. Renée replaces Patina Miller who won a 2013 Tony Award for her turn as the Leading Player.

In a Patriot News story on the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania native and BW Music Theatre grad, Renée said the role is physically demanding, but her hard work paid off on the April 1 opening night, "when she and her castmates received an enthusiastic ovation from a capacity audience."

Playbill posted a gorgeous "First Look" gallery of photos of Renée and new co-star Kyle Dean Massey on stage, while Broadway.com posted a great article and gallery on Pippin's new stars, including "first bows."

The production is ongoing at New York's Music Box Theatre.
