A 2 hour masterclass and Q&A with Mary Ann Lamb!

Mary Ann Lamb was the associate choreographer for Susan Misner and assistant choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler on the hit television series FX Fosse/Verdon. She also coached dance for the stars Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams. She is currently choreographing Mamma Mia! directed by Terrence Mann at Connecticut Repertory Theatre. Last season she choreographed the show Disaster for Connecticut Repertory Theater with Broadway director Jack Plotnick and star Seth Rudetsky.
Prior to that she choreographed the award winning production Evita at Western Connecticut State University receiving the Distinguished Choreography Award from The Kennedy Center American College Theater Awards. In that same season she choreographed Violet for WCSU. Mary Ann also choreographed the concert “Tales of Love “for the not-for profit arts organization Love/Art /Play. She teaches musical theater/modern as an adjunct professor for WCSU and more recently completed teaching a series of Master Classes (Fall 2017) at NYU. Mary Ann choreographed (with Lisa Gadja) Gypsy with Harbor Lights Productions and A Nightingale Sang at Westport Playhouse. She was Associate Choreographer for Susan Misner and Jonathon Bernstein’s, The Shape She Makes at ART Theater in Cambridge, and for JoAnn Hunter on Barry Manilow’s Harmony and Oliver at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey.

As a performer, Mary Ann has performed in 11 Broadway shows. She’s played Young Claire in John Kander and Fred Ebb’s, The Visit, starring Chita Rivera. She danced in the films Rock of Ages and the Oscar award winning movie Chicago. On Broadway she played Mona Page in Curtains starring David Hyde Pierce and in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Curtains, choreographed by JoAnn Hunter. Other Broadway credits include: Contact; Seussical; Fosse; Chicago; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum; Jerome Robbins’ Broadway; Song and Dance; Goodbye Girl; Starlight Express; and Carrie. In addition to Broadway, Mary Ann has danced in eight productions at New York’s City Center in the prestigious ‘Encore series. She has played the lead role of Anna in the York Theater’s off-Broadway presentation of New Girl in Town; Lola in Sacramento Music Circus’s production of Damn Yankees; and Cerraine at Boston’s Huntington Theater in Lady From Maxims.

She has danced in a variety of television roles, commercials, and films—Among these are the Oscar Award-winning film, Chicago; also Rock of Ages; The In Crowd; Portrait of a Showgirl; As the World Turns; and this fall she was honored to dance with The Muppets in their latest adventure film, Letters to Santa. Mary Ann’s extensive dance career is on display in a PBS documentary titled, “Working Dancers II.” Her vision of dance is shaped from working with the following choreographers and directors: Jerome Robbins, Graciella Daniel, Gwen Verdon, Ann Reinking, Kathleen Marshal, Susan Stroman, and Rob Marshal. These luminaries of the theater in addition to many others have inspired Mary Ann to pass on her artistic passion to others where she has taught dance all over the world in universities and master classes, and she is on the faculty of Showstopper Conventions. Mary Ann has taught at several of the top universities including NYU, Penn State, and Julliard. She also teaches and choreographs for FineLine Theater Arts with Scott Wise and Elizabeth Parkinson. In the summer, Mary Ann is part of the dance faculty for three prestigious summer theater camps: TPAT at Wake Forest University, Triple Arts, and the Marthas Vineyard Musical Theater Summer Workshop and NCSA Summer Intensive.
