Alright, that’s a bit unfair. She doesn’t hate puppies herself, but she has recently signed on to star as the puppy-hating mistress Cruella de Vil in The 101 Dalmatians Musical. The role has previously been portrayed by Betty Lou Gerson in Disney’s animated film, April Winchell and Susanne Blakeslee on television, and Glenn Close in the two feature films, always sure to carry a mean streak. Rachel is a regular in musicals and Broadway shows, helping her to naturally fill in the role created by Dodie Smith over 50 years ago. The show, produced by Magic Arts & Entertainment/Tix Productions, Troika Entertainment, and Luis Alvarez, starts its national tour in Minneapolis on October 13th.
