Marilyn Caskey to Return to NY, as Madame Giry

From the official Phantom of the Opera website

MARILYN CASKEY, an acclaimed Carlotta from the New York, San Francisco and National Touring productions, will be returning to Broadway. This time, however, instead of playing the feisty prima donna, she'll tackle the role of Madame Giry. Her debut as the strict and secretive ballet mistress will be Tuesday evening, April 24th.

Miss Caskey most recently played Aldonza in the national tour of Man of La Mancha, garnering a Best Actress nomination from the innaugural National Broadway Theater Awards. In addition to PHANTOM, she has appeared on Broadway in The American Clock and the infamous musical The Utter Glory of Morrissey Hall.

Among her additional and extensive credits are playing Norma Desmond in the Canadian production of Sunset Boulevard, a sensational turn as Rebecca in Paper Mill Playhouse's recent production of Rags and a Bistro Award for Oustanding Performance in Rainbow & Stars' The Bernstein Review.

Miss Caskey replaces long-running, original cast member LEILA MARTIN, who will give her final performance on Saturday evening, April 21st.
