Jamie deRoy can’t sit still. With her career as a Broadway producer in full swing and a slew of Tony awards on her mantle, she isn’t content to just sit around the house. Jamie deRoy can be found out around town any night of the week, seeing a show and socializing with friends. She is one of the most active and appreciative members of the New York entertainment community, and that includes her longtime love of creating the now legendary variety show Jamie deRoy & friends, in which she hosts a coterie of her chums, all of whom are some of the most talented in the business. This Sunday, February 16th, at the Birdland Theater Ms. deRoy returns with her latest installment of the show, one that will benefit The Actor’s Fund of America, as all of her past 12 shows have. With guests like Sierra Boggess, Well Strung and Paula Dione Ingram appearing at the show, deRoy is expecting her usual standing room only status, so this writer reserved his seat early. With only days to go, I called Jamie to check in and had one of the most entertaining chats one can have on a Thursday afternoon. Full interview here.
