Only the Best for Orange County's Own

Marin Mazzie and Jason Danieley
Much of Opera News magazine August edition is dedicated to Broadway. On the cover is a stunning Marin Mazzie, called “Broadway’s Brightest Light” by Opera News Features Editor and author Brian Kellow. In the story titled “What Mazzie Knows” by Kellow, he writes, “On September 26, 2005, in a one-night staged concert performance to benefit the Actors Fund of America, Marin Mazzie gave the greatest single performance I have experienced in the musical theater.“ For those who remember and are in the musical theater know, Mazzie and her also-star-quality husband Jason Danieley were sensations in the Center’s 2012 – 2013 Cabaret Series. They performed a special Valentine’s Day program. In addition to their performances in Samueli Theater, the celebrated couple conducted a master class for promising young Orange County artists who have their eyes on the Great White Way.

Only the best for the Center’s audiences and stars-to-be!
