Two of the biggest have been Sandy Dennis and Sandy Duncan! Ms. Dennis starred in several Broadway plays, including Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean and Any Wednesday. To the public at large, the late actress is probably best known for winning an Oscar for her performance as Honey in the film version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Ms. Duncan, film, TTV and Vegas star has wowed the Broadway crowd with her landmark turn as Peter Pan, and a few years ago as Roxie Hart in the revival of Chicago.
Arguably the two most famous Sandys on Broadway have to be Sandy Dumbrowski from Grease and that adorable pooch, Sandy from Annie. Grease and Annie have both been on Broadway three times, the originals in the 70s, the first revival in the 90's, and the most recent in this century. Here's a look back at Sandy on Broadway!
