Philly's Broadway Baby
A local girl makes her Broadway debut as an Annie orphan.
Forget tomorrow. The sun came out two days ago for Philly native Gaby Bradbury, who made her Broadway debut Tuesday evening as Pepper, one of Annie's orphans. Gaby earned her stripes right here, as a former camper and cast member at the Walnut Street Theatre. She's also trod the boards locally at the Wilma Theater and the Kimmel Center.
