Subject:Dana's Official Site is Up!
Posted by:ballyhoo_gal.
Time:7:13 am.
I may be a day late and a dollar short (that's what happens when you lose access to the Internet for a while), but Dana's official site is now a reality. Wow, and it is fantastic! Bruce did a wonderful job of it--I highly recommend taking a visit over -- just for the theatrical photos and headshots alone! It's a great site, and I wanted to congratulate Dana and her team on it. My Angelfire fansite will still be up, and I will be incorporating a lot of new (old) stuff into over the next few months. So keep your eyes open.

This is sort of off-topic, since Dana Ivey is not in the production, but MTV will be broadcasting the musical version of Legally Blonde on the afternoon of September 29. Dana played Congresswoman Libby Hauser in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde.

Subject:American Theatre Wing Interviews
Posted by:ballyhoo_gal.
Time:1:48 pm.
The American Theatre Wing has three interviews with Dana Ivey from 1987, 1997 (video) and 2005 (audio). I've heard the audio interview, and it's really interesting--lots of intelligent discussion about theater, language, history...oh, and the story of Dana playing an Island Princess in an episode of The Beachcombers during her senior year in college! A fun look at the actress and her work.
