The Troupers

Guess who's coming to opening night dinner at Guastavino's?

And the award for trouper of the year goes to … It’s a tie! Christina Applegate and Charlotte d’Amboise for “Sweet Charity.” Who showed more spunk, more “the show must go on” determination regardless of her reputation or tendons? After breaking her foot during a March 11 perf in Chicago, Applegate would not take Barry Weissler’s no for an answer. Playing the hooker with a heart of gold, she truly became the trouper with a will of iron. Meanwhile, there was d’Amboise, her standby, then replacement, then standby again. She gamely played one week of previews in New York before going back to whence she came, with only a one-day break, playing Roxie Hart in “Chicago.”
