Paris native Marie Danvers came to the United States at the ripe old age of two. She was born into a musical family. Her parents, Charles and Eliane Danvers, had illustrious careers as performers throughout Europe and the Middle East. In 1957, her father wrote the hit song “Till,” which immediately topped the charts, making it possible for him to bring his family to America.
Marie followed in her parents’ footsteps. She is best known for her starring turn as Christine in the Broadway and National Touring productions of The Phantom of the Opera, directed by the legendary Hal Prince.
