Accompanying the Fort Worth Symphony for this performance were three very talented singers, since many of the big hits were not just instrumental. Donna McKechnie, the Tony Award winning star of A Chorus Line, was one of the performers. Along with her was the talented Jodi Benson, whom everyone in the world knows as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, among many other voices for Disney. Rounding out the trio was Doug Labrecque, who has played both Raoul and the Phantom from The Phantom of the Opera, along with many other musicals like Les Miserables. Very talented group, indeed. They were fantastic!
After the show, I was thrilled to discover that Doug Labrecque was selling CDs in the foyer of Broadway recordings that he has performed, so we bought a CD and he autographed it for me while we talked to him for a little bit. Such a nice man, and I was a little bit star struck (though I didn't hyperventilate or anything...as I'm known to do around famous people). It was a great night!
