Harrison’s Sophia Gennusa will share role
Sophia Gennusa, 9, from Harrison, is a veteran of Purchase College’s famed “Nutcracker.” (That’s her, inset, when she was 7.)
She’ll share the role — a girl whose parents are bad, but not as bad as her headmistress — with Oona Laurence, Bailey Ryon and Milly Shapiro. All are making their Broadway debuts in the musical based on Roald Dahl’s story.
Performances begin March 4 and the show opens on April 11, 2013, at the Shubert Theater. Details at www.matildathemusical.com.
