"The Divine Sister"'s Teutonic nun Alison Fraser talks about her role, her prior work -- and sharing a dressing room -- with playwright/actor Charles Busch. She also discusses her musical theatre roots in high school in Natick MA, where she met prior graduate William Finn, leading to her creating the role of Trina in both "In Trousers" and "March of the Falsettos"; how being cast in "Beehive" gave her her first opportunity to show she could be funny; the pleasure of performing in the two one-act musicals known as "Romance, Romance"; how having her own child informed her role as Martha in "The Secret Garden"; her longstanding connection with David Saint and his George Street Playhouse; the experience of working with Arthur Laurents on shows both old (the most recent Broadway "Gypsy") and new ("Come Back, Come Back, Wherever You Are"); and she reveals, despite her oft-stated affinity for creating roles in new works, the roles from the classic musical theatre canon she'd most like to play. Original air date - November 17, 2010.
