Charlotte d’Amboise honored at 2013 Astaire Awards

Pippin star Charlotte d’Amboise and Motown player Eric LaJuan Summers took home the awards for Outstanding Female and Male Dancer in a Broadway show, respectively, at the 31st Annual Fred and Adele Astaire Awards. The ceremony was held June 3 at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

Additionally, Pippin choreographer Chet Walker and Motown choreographers Patricia Wilcox and Warren Adams tied for Outstanding Choreographer of a Broadway show.

Sidi Larbi Cherkaouit took home the award for Outstanding Choreographer in a Feature Film.

I was fortunate to perform in CHICAGO the Musical many times with Charlotte – my favorite “Roxie.”  AND I’d followed and enjoyed her work for many years before and after.  MORE than deserving of the honor.  What a great, great theater artist.

Congrats to Charlotte and all the honorees!
