Aussie stage star Caroline O’Connor offers a guided tour of her favourite spots around the Big Apple.
Caroline O’Connor has discovered what it’s like to have New York at her feet, as one of the lead stars of the new Broadway musical hit, Anastasia.
The Aussie stage diva, who has become legendary with her star turns in such shows as Chicago, West Side Story and Anything Goes and on screen in Moulin Rouge, is now winning new fans in New York for her role of Countess Lily in Anastasia.
As the lady-in-waiting to the Russian Dowager Empress, Caroline stops the show with her high-kicking effervescence in such numbers as Land of Yesterday.
“I’m having the time of my life in this show and the audiences are loving it,” she says in her dressing room, while getting ready for a matinee performance.
“This is my third show on Broadway, and New York manages to weave its spell over me each time. It’s such a wonderful town that has a new surprise at each turn.”
Caroline shared five of her favourite must-visit spots around the Big Apple that she insists any visitor needs to explore.
