During the pre-Broadway San Francisco run, the reviews for Orfeh and Karl were exemplary and only drowned out by screaming girls hunting down Karl.
[In a nice coincidence, Legally Blonde’s composers Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe are also married.] Orfeh and Andy met during the last six months of Saturday Night Fever.Christian Borle [previously DD-nominated for Spamalot] co-stars as Emmett Richmond. ” Adds Karl, “That’s when they fell in love with her.” States Orfeh, “It was just a matter of convincing them I’m not this hard ass rock chick.” Without a lot of brainiac thinking, it was also “when it dawned on Jerry [Mitchell] that we’d make a great team,” reports Karl. “I never understood why she’d be crazy enough to want to be with me,” he states. I’d be happy if Orfeh was making millions and I could buy a Mercedes.” Orfeh, cracking up, blurts, “What! ” Karl admits that even though he loves to work, “and I’ve been lucky to keep working, I’m not one of those persons who says, ‘I’ve got to make the money.’ We support each other’s career.” [He's now pursuing musical theater composing.] Orfeh's one word name is not pretension. Mom was big fan of the film Black Orpheus [based on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth and set during Carnival in Rio].The show also marks the return to the stage of Tony and DD-winner Michael Rupert as Professor Callahan. They worked on the parts at home, but she got the role based on her audition. The couple may be the embodiment of the old axiom that opposites attract. "It fascinates me that people think I came up with it. The girl is Orfeo and Mom got it into her head that was what her child was going to be named. " A born and bred New Yorker [Karl’s from Baltimore] with a French and Italian heritage, she does say that her name intrigues people. ” In public school here, she continues, "no one even batted an eye when roll call was called. ” Over sashimi, green tea — and a side dish of chagrin — the toothy, 41-year-old Tony winner (“Peter and the Starcatcher”) says he started working out 2 ½ years ago.“We built him from the ground up.” Six months into his new, twice-weekly regime, Borle decided he wanted to “get bigger.” Since then he’s been working out seven days a week, for an hour at a time — a grueling routine of chest-fly machines, push-ups, pull-ups, curls and “heavy squats” on a machine that has him lifting 560 pounds. “It hasn’t been a bad thing,” admits Borle, whose ex loves include Sutton Foster and his “Legally Blonde” co-star Laura Bell Bundy.She expects Warner to propose, but he breaks up with her instead, reasoning that she is not serious enough for his political aspirations. After much effort, Elle scores a 179 on the Law School Admission Test.
This score, combined with her 4.0 GPA and a high IQ gains her admission into Harvard Law School, where Warner has enrolled.
