RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Actors Denise Pence and Steve Boockvor will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the world of Broadway on Friday at 1 p.m. at Founders Hall in Ridgefield.

These Broadway veterans have worked with some of the best-known directors and creators in the business, including Michael Bennett, Bob Fosse, Hal Prince, Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz in shows such as "Annie," "Cabaret," "Follies" and "Pippin."

They were the inspiration for the characters ‘Al’ and ‘Christine’ in "A Chorus Line," and Boockvor was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in "Working."

They were recently included in director Rick McKay's "Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age," the second installment of a trilogy that tells the story of the legendary Broadway season of 1959, through the tumultuous '60s, the revolutionary '70s, up to the opening night of "42nd Street" in 1980.

The careers of this formidable team have bloomed beyond Broadway. Pence was nominated for an Emmy Award for her role in daytime television’s "The Guiding Light" and continues to work as an actress in theater and commercials.

Boockvor has produced, directed and choreographed theatrical and television projects internationally for the past 40 years and is currently collaborating on two one-act plays.

The public is welcome to attend their talk. Founders Hall, a donor-supported education and recreation center for individuals age 60 and over, is located at 193 Danbury Road, Ridgefield.
