Christine Company question

Post  ravnquest1 on Tue Jun 29, 2010 5:58 pm

Question for the wizened masses: does anyone remember who the original Christine understudy or understudies for Dale Kristien were in 1989 in the Los Angeles company?

Well the alternate was Mary D'arcy and the understudy was Jani Neuman. Very Happy

Didn't she do the first run without alternates? I've read both, but I don't think the original Crawford/Kristien brochure list any alternates. But I seem to remember the second brochure (Guillaume/Kristien) features Mary Easterling as alternate. I might remember it wrong, though.

actually I was looking for another name and I managed to find t. There was someone else, Tamra Shaker. She was the Christine standby for some of the run in L.A.- she did perform opposite Michael Crawford when Dale Kristien got sick in late 1989. Not sure if anyone here managed to see her.

Well her name isn't in the program that i have which was printed in Oct '89. But i guess it's possible she may have been in the show before that because the production opened May '89.

Ah, OK.

I checked the two brochures I have. In the Guillaume/Kristien one Mary Easterling is listed as "Christine standby", while Jani Neuman is understudy. This brochure actually doesn't list any print date, only when the LA production opened. Same is the case with the Crawford/Kristien one, wherw Mary D'Arcy is listed as alternate (Tuesday and Wednesday evenings), while Jani Neuman is understudy.

I've actually never heard of Tamra Shaker, thanks for bringing her to my attention.
