Lisa Howard is an actor whose performances are as notable for their touching depth as they are for
their powerhouse bravado. The result for audience members: a truly unique and wholly satisfying
the-atrical experience. Lisa is a staple on the Broadway stage, with memorable roles in It Shoulda
Been You at the Brooks Atkinson, Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert at the Palace, and now, Jimmy Buffett’s
musical hit Escape to Margaritaville at the Marquis. We are dying to see Lisa Howard do what she does
best this season, and excited we get to pick her talented brain this week On the Couch.
