I will be appearing on At Home with Amy Sedaris later this fall on TruTV. There will be a screening of the episode on Thursday, October 19 at The Bowery Ballroom.
Here is a short scene that I did for the show Falling Water on the USA Network.
I’ll be performing a song called “Time Goes By” from Grover’s Corner, which is a musical adaptation from the play Our Town by Thornton Wilder.
And I’m also adding Emily’s monologue from the end of the original play. I’d love to see you there!
I taught a Master Class at Duke University in September of 2017. It was so interesting and enjoyable! And the students were so receptive. It couldn’t have been a better couple of days.
Here are some photos from Rita’s one-woman show in Cape May.
Rita will perform a song from Grover’s Corners by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt based on the classic play Our Town by Thornton Wilder. The performance is part of the series Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came to Broadway.
Rita will perform Much More…A Musical Tribute to the Songs of Jones and Schmidt as part of the PNC Arts Alive Broadway Series.

Rita Gardner will be performing in the revue Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came to Broadway at 54Below on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.
Rita was interviewed on the Behind the Curtain: Broadway’s Living Legend podcast. You can listen to the episode below:
Here is the description from the Behind the Curtain website:
In a career that spans sixty years, Rita Gardner is the epitome of the word “legend”. While she is best known to audiences as The Girl in The Fantasticks, or as the hip hopping Grandma in The Wedding Singer, Rita’s career has gone from radio to television to theatre to cabaret and now to podcast!
Rita joins Rob & Kevin to discuss such topics as what it was like debuting The Fantasticks, standing by for legends like Barbara Harris, Linda Lavin, and Constance Towers, and how she has quickly become one of the world’s greatest cabaret artists.
