"Forever Dusty," book by Kirsten Holly Smith and Jonathan Vankin, opened off Broardway in New York City in November of 2012, starring Ms. Smith as Dusty Springfield. HJT’s production stars Elin Hersch in that role, with Heidi Crawley as Claire. The ensemble includes Anne Vohs, Suzette Hutchinson, Ed Coppolla, and Jon Cornet in various roles.
Ms. Hersch has performed everywhere from the sidewalks of Chicago to Carnegie Hall, including in the Cotuit Center for the Arts' recent productions of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Jolene) and Cabaret (Fraulein Kost). The production will be directed by Robert Wilder, HJT's resident musical director, and choreographed by Suzette Hutchinson, who is on the faculty at HJT.
