Susan Facer and Jerry Steichen became good friends when they performed on Broadway together in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. Susan was singing the lead, Christine Daae, and Jerry was conducting. But when the show ended their paths diverged and they lost contact. A decade later they serendipitously bumped into each other in the Salt Lake airport. Susan was moving to Utah from New Jersey and Jerry had become Principal Pops Conductor of Utah Symphony. Today they perform Broadway tunes together including “Think of Me” from Phantom for the grand finale! Eric Glissmeyer chats with Susan about stage mishaps, touring with her young family and landing the big role. He also chats with Jerry Steichen about his Oklahoma roots and current projects.
