Guest: Tedra Millan
Tedra Millan makes her Broadway debut this season starring opposite Kevin Kline in the revival of “Present Laughter,” playing the young ingénue Daphne Stillington, who is obsessed with Kline’s character. Coincidentally, she is reprising the role which was her very first professional acting gig at summer stock in upstate New York many years ago! TIME OUT NY listed Teddi’s work in last year’s “The Wolves” as one of the Breakout Performances of 2016 and she is poised to break out again here.
