Video: Coloradans on Broadway: Rebecca Eichenberger

All this week leading up to Sunday’s Tony Awards, we will be rolling out a daily video featuring a Colorado actor working on Broadway. First up: Denver East High School grad Rebecca Eichenberger, who is playing several roles in An American in Paris, which is up for 12 awards. This is the seventh Broadway show for Eichenberger, who in 1988 performed for her hometown Denver Center Theatre Company in the musical Carousel.  She also performed at StageWest (now known as the Garner-Galleria Theatre) in the musical comedy Six Women With Brain Death. “You know what? I am so proud to be from Denver,” Eichenberger says. “So many people I know in the (Broadway) theatre came from Denver. It’s such a fantastic thing that we all seem to hang on to what we had in high school.” Video by John Moore.
