The Brightest Lights on Broadway: Emma Crow

The 17-year-old makes her Broadway debut in “The Music Man” opposite Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster

The Music Man has been perhaps the most anticipated Broadway revival in years, in part because it stars Hugh Jackman as traveling salesman Harold Hill and Sutton Foster as his love interest, Marian the librarian. Crow, a 17-year-old ballet dancer from Hackettstown, New Jersey, is pretty excited too, especially because she’ll be playing Zaneeta Shinn, the mayor’s eldest teenage daughter, in her Broadway debut. “I’ve always loved this musical for as long as I can remember,” says Crow, who now lives on the Upper East Side. “As a little girl, I grew up watching it with my grandfather, because it was his favorite. I’ve always loved to perform, so being able to do it eight times a week is a dream.”
