On February 19, 2005, the company celebrated it's 34th year! Of course, many casts have appeared with us over the past three decades, including ME. The original founder of The Songs of Broadway Co. was Forrest J. Willingham, Jr. my late husband. He left the company as his legacy and left me running the show. I've been in the business for over 20 Years and enjoying every minute of it. I studied Opera at the University of MIami and Musical Theatre at New York University. I have been all over the country at various regional theatres, dinner theatres, cruises, tours, etc.... mainly as as a singer/actress with various companies. Now, I enjoy the privilege of running my own company, producing and directing my own shows and I can choose to star in them or just run things behind the scenes. Whichever one you catch me doing, I have been blessed with every gift imaginable and enjoy giving other very talented individuals the opportunity to share their gifts as well with our very loyal audiences. Thank you! -BARBARA
