We took a few minutes to check in with the cast to hear their thoughts on revisiting this beautiful song cycle and finally returning to LIVE performances! Michele Marie Roberts returns as WOMAN 2 on October 22.
SGT: Have you ever seen SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD MMR: Yes! I’ve seen a few versions and it’s refreshing every single time.
SGT: When was the first time you heard this show? MMR: Niagara University, probably Sophomore year. Fell in love instantly and we are still going strong.
SGT: Do you have a favorite song from this show?
MMR: I’m all about the ensemble pieces and it’s a solid tie between Flying Home and The River Won’t Flow.
SGT: If you could sing any song that is NOT yours from the show, what would it be?
MMR: I’m Not Afraid of Anything is a stunning song.
SGT: What song are you most looking forward to performing LIVE every night ?
MMR: Interacting with each other and the audience will be so exciting during The Steam Train. It’s almost impossible not to move to the music. And Hear My Song will be our anthem to Buffalo’s triumphant theatrical return. “We’ll be fine.”
