“…into our lives came the Canadian tour de force Christie Lee Manning. Not only was she perfect for the Queen Bitch role, but she gave us complete creative freedom to create the androgynous look we had in mind. The great thing about
Christie is her complete immersion into her roles. She owns the stage, but is also generous in her craft, bringing the less experienced dancers and actors along with her and making the overall impact powerful, intense, and incredibly visual.
