Broadway Triple threat group singing





"Three things: Nobody is more warm and delightful than Catherine Cox. That's the first thing. And nobody as delightful is a better actress. That's the second thing. And the third: I cannot imagine a young performer learning acting from a more empathetic teacher. She's a remarkable and wonderful woman."

- Bill Finn
Tony Award Winning Composer / Lyricist of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Falsettoland, March of the Falsettos and A New Brain

"Directing Catherine Cox in Footloose on Broadway was pure joy. I was already a fan, but the surprise was watching our youthful cast flock around Catherine, inspired by her wit, insight and dedication. Her process is a smart blend of experience, craft, self-knowledge, and a liberated imagination. I watched her inspire her young colleagues and effortlessly raise the bar for our eager but inexperienced cast. And she did it with the humor and generosity of a seasoned pro. Catherine is a uniquely gifted teacher and you will find her guidance invigorating."

Walter Bobbie
Tony Award Winning Director of Chicago

"When I first met with and worked with Catherine Cox, I could barely contain myself as she is someone that I so deeply admired. At the time, I was a giggling fan - I admired her for her voice, her acting, her artistry. Then I worked with her and got to learn so much by being right next to her. Once I knew her, I got to admire her as a human being. Both have been gifts that I cannot measure. I'm obviously still a giggling fan."

- Julia Murney
Starred as Elphaba in Broadway's Wicked

"Catherine Cox is the real deal - a consummate artist graced with depth, humor and a wealth of theater experience. Any young performer lucky enough to work with her is likely to learn plenty, and have a whole lot of fun."

- Winnie Holzman
Nominated for a 2004 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and winner of the 2004 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical for Wicked. TV: My So-Called Life, Thirty Something.

"Any young musical "hopeful" would be crazy to pass up a chance to work with Catherine Cox. She could help any dancer to "step out of the chorus." 

- Kristen Leigh Gorski
Dance Captain for Broadway's Wicked.

"As a performer, Catherine Cox brings every role she interprets to full and vibrant life not only through her voice - one of the most extraordinary in contemporary musical theater - but through her total and perceptive attention to character. She is a lyricist's best friend - devoted to making every word and intention understood and deeply felt. As a teacher, she employs all these gifts in the service of enabling other performers to develop strategies and skills for approaching each song they sing with an exceptional level of craft and conviction."

- Sarah Schlesinger
Chair, Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program, Tisch School of the Arts, NYC

"Everything about my first Broadway show (Footloose) wowed me, especially working with such talented and committed actors as Catherine Cox. When I moved to the city a decade ago, I was primarily a dancer but I learned quickly the necessity of vocal and acting training in the theater. I believe a program like Broadway Triple Threat will be a great opportunity for dancers to become more well-rounded performers, and I know I would have taken advantage of it!"

- Mark Myars
Dance Captain for Broadway's Wicked and 9 to 5

"Catherine Cox is a miracle worker. She can make an inexperienced performer blossom and make a good performer great. She understands whether your dream is to be on Broadway or to be dancing your heart out in the next great movie musical extravaganza, you have to be a triple threat. We have seen so many wonderfully talented kids come in and audition who we didn't cast because they couldn't read the scene or were too nervous singing the song. Don't get in your own way. If you're serious about a career this is where you want to be. Really."

- Faye Greenberg and David Lawrence
Songwriters, Disney's High School Musical series

"Catherine Cox is absolutely fabulous. Really. On stage and in the classroom."

- Phillip George
Director of Forbidden Broadway, Tony Award for Excellence in Theater

"I have wanted to email you and tell you what an incredible week Meghan had with BTT! She loved it and learned so much! It was such a great experience for her. Don't be surprised if you start to get lots of applicants from Texas - all her performing friends have been asking about it and want to go next summer! Again, thank you for providing such a wonderful atmosphere and training for Meghan! "

-Jen Sherman (Maghan's Mom)

"Singing, dancing and acting has become a big part of Julianne's life, and she has a dream of being on Broadway some day. Your program really opened her eyes as to what it takes to make this dream become a reality. Julianne was so taken with the fact that she got to meet and work with so many well-known professionals. What she learned from your program enlightened her and she was able to see all the components that go into a Broadway production. She will also take to heart all the critiques that she received from these well-respected "show-biz people" and use this knowledge as a stepping stone toward her goal."

- Shelley Simson (Julianne's Mom)

"Alex cannot stop talking about how wonderful the program is and how much he has learned. The teachers are top rate and provide insightful feedback. He was able to take risks and grow as a performer in an environment that was nurturing and supportive. Catherine Cox is a truly gifted teacher and one that every parent would want their child to have."

- Erika Honda (Alex's Mom)

"Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for you and the experience Markelle had with you this summer at Broadway Triple Threat.  he returned home from NY with a new found confidence and deeper commitment to the performing arts.  it's not often that a child knows what he wants to do for the rest of his life.  Broadway Triple Threat was the experience of a lifetime.  he is still talking about it!  Thank you. Thank you.  Thank you."

- Cicley Grey (Markelle's Mom)

"Your ability to put together a program with the creme de la creme of "who's who on Broadway" made this whole week spectacular and insightful. Again, thank you for making the week that Julianne attended "Broadway Triple Threat" a time in her life that she will never forget."

- David Simson (Julianne's Dad)
