Pamela Hall: “An Ingenue Who Got Lost in the Stars”

From Playbill.com : an article about the director of “Danny and Sylvia: The Danny Kaye Musical” (Closed April 2012)

Pamela Hall: “An Ingenue Who Got Lost in the Stars”

“She made her Broadway debut as Nina, the winsome waitress who sings “I’ve Never Said I Loved You” in Dear World, then replaced Betty Buckley as Martha Washington in 1776 and was Philia in Broadway’s second A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

Then — poof! — she got out of the ingénue business and, for all practical and visible purposes, dropped off the side of the stage while she was still ahead of the game.”

In truth, Pamela Hall only relocated behind the footlights and became a director. Ms Hall’s efforts as director were displayed in the long-running, Danny and Sylvia: The Danny Kaye Musical. It opened at St Lukes Theatre, May 13, 2008, and closed April 27th, 2012
