Rep. Carolyn Maloney To Make Stage Debut As Corpse In ‘Romeo And Juliet’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney is excited about her stage debut, even if it means playing a corpse.
Maloney will play one of the dead bodies in the Capulet family crypt during the final scene in which the star-crossed lovers take their own lives.
The congresswoman studied dance as a youth and dreamed of becoming a ballerina, but Maloney was lucky to still be able to walk after she was struck by a drunk driver at 17.
“I’m finally making it to the stage in ballet,” Maloney told 1010 WINS. “I promise my constituents that I will not let my day job suffer because of my night job on this one day.”
