THE ORIGINAL MILLIE WILL BE OUR GUEST
Ryss will join us as a guest. She played Millie Centron in the original production at Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Happily, she is recovering nicely from a stroke which initially left her speechless. But she's back and chatty as ever. Can't wait to hear her voice again!
