Charlotte d'Amboise (born May 11, 1964) is an American actress and dancer. She has played starring roles in musical theatre, and has been nominated for two Tony Awards and won the Los Angeles Ovation Awards for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for Chicago. She has also appeared in films.

Early life
Charlotte d'Amboise was born in New York City, the daughter of Jacques d'Amboise and Carolyn George. She is the twin sister of Cate and younger sister of Christopher d'Amboise.

Career:Musical theatre
d'Amboise made her Broadway debut in the musical Cats in 1983 as Cassandra. She also performed in the role of Chris Hargensen in the ill-fated 1988 musical Carrie. She frequently has played the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, first heading the 1997 national tour and later joining the Broadway revival cast in 1999. She has appeared in productions of the musical every year since 2001.

In 2001, she replaced Karen Ziemba in Contact.

In early 2005, d'Amboise replaced Christina Applegate in the Boston leg of the pre-Broadway tour of the revival of Sweet Charity, as well as the first few weeks of previews on Broadway, following a foot injury sustained by Applegate that nearly cancelled the production. Once Applegate returned to the role in New York, d'Amboise remained as her standby while simultaneously performing the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago.

She appeared in the Broadway revival of A Chorus Line in 2006 to 2008 as Cassie, earning a Tony Award nomination.

Her film credits include The In Crowd, American Blue Note, Just Off The Coast, and The Preacher's Wife. On television she has appeared in the Kennedy Center Honors, Law & Order, a videotaped performance of the Broadway musical Contact. She has also appeared in several made-for-TV movies, including Lost in the Bermuda Triangle (1998) and Alone in the Neon Jungle (1988).

I would love to see more of this! Do you have anymore clips with Susie Misner in them?

Most definitely Susie is coming up soon..... and she has some really powerful things to say.

All of these women have had prolific careers as dancers and authentically share the reality of a life in dance.

Thanks for your comment Kayla!
