CATHY RICHARDS For our service this Sunday, April 26th in NYC, the theme is TRUTH AND LIES and playwright Christina Anderson is writing a short play on the theme – the first of our new play initiative featuring The Secret City Players. I’m delighted to announce that Cathy Richards is going to be part of it. Cathy is a good, old-fashioned (altho no traditional by any means) triple threat – dancer, singer, actor. I know her from The Secret City Singers – she’s been singing with us for the past season. This Sunday, along with the rest of our amazing cast, she’ll be showing off her acting chops. So excited to see this – and to witness Cathy’s radiance in another medium.
