BroadwayWorld brings you photos of EVITA's Rachel Potter and ROCK OF AGES' Constantine Maroulis rehearsing in the studio for Potter's upcoming release concert for her debut country EP, "Live the Dream." She and Maroulis will perform at Joe's Pub tomorrow, May 13.
This independent release marks Potter's first collaboration with songwriter and producer Justin York. "It's got real guts," says Potter of the co-written EP, "We wanted to make a record that joined pop country music with a rock edge - Think Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift with a Paramore twist. It's a risk, but it's exciting."
Potter is currently appearing as the Mistress in this season's buzzworthy Broadway revival, Evita. She appears alongside Ricky Martin, Elena Roger, and Michael Cerveris at the Marquis Theater. She made her Broadway debut as "Wednesday Addams" in The Addams Family starring Brooke Shields, following a tour with Stephen Schwartz's smash hit musical, Wicked. Rachel has also performed the roles of Ariel, Belle, and Nemo, among others, at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
The evening at Joe's Pub will feature guest appearances by Cosmo-Country sensation The Vanity Belles, and The Country Band featuring Marty Thomas, in addition to Constantine Maroulis.
