Meet the Artists: Abby Mueller with Christine Sherrill

Abby Mueller and Christine Sherrill make each other laugh. While doing a musical together in Chicago, they discovered they had the same sense of humor and became backstage bosom buddies. They’ve been winter-spring-summer-or-fall-all-you-have-to-do-is-call friends and kindred spirits ever since. They’re both masterful artists that command the stage, and each theater royalty in their own right: Abby is Queen Jane Seymour in the Broadway musical SIX, and Christine played Donna the Dancing Queen in the Ordway’s acclaimed production of Mamma Mia! Don’t miss this very special episode of Meet the Artists and your chance to have virtual cocktails with Abby and Christine. Make a happy hour date with your best friend and join the conversation. After all, whether you’re in person or online, ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend?

This conversation will last approximately 60 minutes, followed by a 20-minute audience Q&A session. Audience questions may be submitted throughout the program.

The event will stream live, and viewing is free, but capacity is limited—reserve your spot now!
