Also on Broadway Pamela played Lucille in Meet Me in St. Louis, Babette (the feather duster) in Beauty and the Beast, and Cinderella in Into the Woods. Across the US Pamela played leading roles at many regional theaters, and made many TV guest appearances as well as hosting her own TV show, Arts Coast to Coast. Change Happens, her one-woman stage show, played in several venues on both coasts, and her CD of the same name is available on iTunes. Her new cabaret show, Love and Sax, debuts in February.
Pamela loves to collaborate. A lifelong artist, she nurtures her performing career while creating and supporting new works. As producer she won a Drama Desk Award for the Broadway revival of Hair in 2009, in 2010 gained another Drama Desk, an Outer Critic’s Circle and Tony Award for the Best Musical Memphis, and is currently producing the four-time Tony winner An American in Paris. For the past few years she has been flexing her musical muscles in a new way as composer and lyricist for the musical Higher Education.
Pamela loves to give back as shown by her work creating opportunities for young artists during three seasons of Apples and Oranges’ Bridge to Broadway program in Orange County. These days you will often find her speaking to young actors in high schools and theatre conservatories and mentoring young artists in master classes across the country.
