Broadway audiences first fell in love with Cass Morgan almost 30 years ago when she and Debra Monk played sassy sister waitresses in the charming Tony-nominated musical Pump Boys and Dinettes.
Since then, Morgan has repeatedly been cast as strong southern women, even though she hails from upstate New York. Currently playing feisty mom Gladys Calhoun in the hit musical Memphis, she takes what at first seems to be an unsympathetic role and infuses it with humor and humanity.
We asked this talented actress to trace her road to Memphis—and recall some of her favorite stage ladies from south of the Mason-Dixon line.
