THE GREEN ROOM 42 – the intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times – will present two-time Tony Award nominee Josie de Guzman in her special new show “Back Where I Started” for two performances on Friday, September 8 and Sunday, September 10, both at 7:00 PM. Her show features career highlights from her Broadway debut in Liz Swados’ Runaways to her Tony nominated portrayals of Maria in West Side Story and Sarah in Guys and Dolls, in addition to her collaborations with Arthur Laurents, Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Alan Jay Lerner, and Burton Lane, along with a few surprises. The show is directed by Gerard Alessandrini, the creator of Forbidden Broadway, with musical direction by Larry Yurman.
Josie de Guzman was born in New York City and raised in Puerto Rico, where her love for theater began. She started at The Public Theater, playing a teenager in the multi-Tony nominated musical Runaways, written and directed by Liz Swados, followed by Swados’ Hagaddah and Lullabye and Goodnight, directed by Joe Papp. She appeared on Broadway in Carmelina, Nick & Nora, and was nominated for the Tony Award as Maria in the first Broadway revival of West Side Story, where she had the unsurpassed experience of working closely with Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins and Gerald Freedman in creating a new production of that classic. She received a second Tony nomination for her performance as Sarah Brown in the acclaimed revival of Guys and Dolls, directed by Jerry Zaks. She’s appeared frequently in productions Off-Broadway, across the country, and on tour throughout Europe. Her nightclub and concert work has been seen in New York, at Lincoln Center, in Copland’s Lincoln Portrait with the Houston Symphony, and in San Juan. http://www.josiedeguzman.com
