3) Matt Interviews Jean Louisa Kelly

Accompanied by award-winning musical director Paul Bogaev, Jean Louisa Kelly takes us on a journey through the serendipitous story of her life in and out of show-business, from small-town New England to Hollywood and Broadway. With songs from “Gypsy,” “The Fantasticks,” “Next to Normal,” and “Company,” and directed by Richard Sabellico, Kelly’s story is uplifting, moving and fun, leaving you with the belief that truly, “Anything Can Happen!”

Other film credits include “The Fantasticks,” “Call of the Wild,” and “Malignant.” She also starred in the long-running CBS sitcom “Yes, Dear.” Additional theatrical productions include “Reprise!” musicals “Company,” “Applause,” “Pippin,” and The York Theatre Company’s “The It Girl.”
