Broadway Ladies: Ms. November 2010: Amy Spanger

This month's Miss Broadway seems so appropriate to me for its proximity to Thanksgiving, for she has, over the years, given me much to be thankful for.  A true triple threat, this young lady can sing, act, and dance.  What strikes me most about her career thus far is its range.  She's played a Hollywood actress trying to break into the movies, a sassy stage siren, a merry murderess, a satirical good girl, a Madonna wannabe, an 80's MTV rocker-chick parody, and most recently, an old-fashioned Broadway song and dance girl.  And last night, she made her return to the Great White Way in the holiday family musical, Elf

In between all of that, she has guest starred on several TV shows, including Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Six Feet Under, Ed and Royal Pains.  There are also a couple of movies on her resume: Snynecdoche, NY and Reefer Madness!  The girl is working!

And now... Ms. Broadway November 2010...Amy Spanger!

Headshot

Love the smile!


Kiss Me, Kate (1999)
Lois Lane/Bianca


As sassy, but sweet Bianca with her suitors...

...and as even sassier Lois Lane (with Michael Beresse)!


Chicago (2002)
Roxie Hart

In 2002, Ms. Spanger was married to
Michael C. Hall. (They have since divorced.)

She was Roxie Hart to his Billy Flynn.

And they both reached for the gun.

Spanger with the sultry Chicago
ad campaign for her run.


Urinetown: The Musical (2003)
Hope Cladwell

She was the final Hope during Urinetown's Broadway run.
Charles Shaughnessy was her dad in the show.

I love this picture... the cast back stage drinking water!
(Ms. Spanger with Luther Creek, Jeff McCarthy
and an unidentified ensemble member.)


Reefer Madness (2005)
Sally DeBains

Her name may not be above the title, but
she's the biggest thing on the poster!

The picture says it all!


The Wedding Singer (2006)
Holly

In full Madonna mode...

She offers Laura Benanti some friendly advice:
"Go after that man!"

"Saturday Night in the City"

You gotta love 80's dancing...


Rock of Ages (2009)
Sherrie

On Opening Night with co-star Constantine Maroulis

The now classic Rock of Ages pose

Spanger's got the goods, and she's
showing them to James Carpinello!


Robin and the Seven Hoods (2010)
Alana O'Dell (Pre-Broadway)

Talk about your "rat pack"

Singin' and smokin', 60's style

On a flight with Will Chase and several stewardesses!


Elf: The Musical (2010)
Jovie

From no Christmas Spirit...

...to all out Elferie!

Is she happy or embarrassed by the hat?
