Lynn Steps on Stage


The illustrious Lynn Wyatt has chaired or been honored at innumerable Houston Grand Opera f%26ecirc;tes and even presided over the 50th anniversary festivities, which brought Elton John to town. Now she takes on a different role %26mdash; on stage. She%26rsquo;s been tapped by HGO for its latest, Francesca Zambello%26rsquo;s brilliant new staging of Show Boat, the beloved musical by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II, based on the Edna Ferber novel. Watch for Wyatt%26rsquo;s cameo as the Lady on the Levee in the final act, where she trades her signature Valentino and Chanel for 19th-century elegance.
