I’m told I was the first ethnic actress to play the role of Luisa (The Girl) in The Fantasticks. Six nights a week, after performing in The Fantasticks, I was the featured singer in the Back Room of the Caucus Club in Detroit. The first time I sang in the Back Room of the Caucus Club in 1962, William Gregory walked in and asked if I would like to come back to Detroit and play Luisa in the Fantasticks! Of course I said Yes on the spot!
