I spoke with the fabulous Dorothy Stanley who plays Broadway diva, Dorothy Brock in 42ND STREET.....

"I was raised in West Hartford, CT and went to school at Ithaca College and Carnegie-Mellon U (my parents' Alma Mater) where I got my BFA and MFA in Viola Performance and minored in Drama. While in Pittsburgh I auditioned for the Civic Light Opera and was cast in the chorus. After two summers (five shows each) I had my Equity card. I then moved to NYC to continue studying the Viola at Julliard, but also started auditioning for shows. I started playing in area orchestras, but got my first theatrical job 2 months after moving to NY. I juggled both orchestra gigs and shows for about a year, but I got more and more theatre offers. Since performing was what I really my dream, I put the viola on hold."
