The amazing Joyce Reehling stepped into the role of Ouiser on short notice on opening night (and again Friday) and did an amazing job! She’ll be on for both shows Saturday, and Sunday’s closing show as well.  Here’s more about Joyce’s impressive career:

She was a member of the prestigious Circle Repertory Company where she originated many roles for Lanford Wilson, Milan Stitt, David Mamet and others. Joyce worked with William Hurt, Christopher Reeve, Richard Thomas, Debra Monk, Swoosie Kurtz, Jeff Daniels, Cynthia Nixon to name a few. Joyce did many commercials for TV and Radio; she was the first Dr. Mom and was the voice of IKEA on radio. TV shows such as Law & Order, Ed, Kate and Allie, NYPD Blue, Cosby and numerous daytime dramas were a part of her career. She is a proud member of Actors Equity and SAG-AFTRA. She and her husband now reside in Pinehurst and she writes for The Pilot.
