Triple-threat musical theatre performer Darien Crago stars as Judy Haynes in the holiday classic Irving Berlin's White Christmas at the Engeman Theater. She shares a recent day of travel, rehearsal and onstage magic with the cast and crew at the famed Long Island venue.
"Hello Playbill Community," says Crago. "Darien Crago here! *salute!* I'm playing Judy Haynes in the John W. Engeman Theater's production of White Christmas this holiday season. Join me as I take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of a day at the Engeman Theater. And don't forget to come see our show, running until Jan. 5. Happy Holidays!"
Drew Humphrey and I love pianos. L-O-V-E them. In fact..we may do an entire tap number dedicated to them. We'll see.
