Halfway through her junior year at UCLA, Susan Egan landed a featured role opposite Tommy Tune in a hugely successful national touring production of "Bye Bye Birdie" directed by Gene Saks. "That's how I got my Equity card," said Egan, whose yearlong tour in the revival included a stop at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in 1992, and who now has become a Broadway star.

For two weeks in a row, your writers have missed the perfect chance to review a great new CD. Both Don Heckman ("Versatile Vocalists Who Shouldn't Be Overlooked," Feb. 24) and Don Shirley ("Sometimes, the Good Songs Are Preserved," March 3) should have got their hands on Susan Egan's new CD. Titled "So Far . . ." and packed with show tunes, Egan's premiere solo disc is breathtaking. Notwithstanding that I have no connection to Egan, and even though the official release date was March 5, I was able to get an advance copy of the album via her Web site.

Susan Egan is back home this week with her career as a leading lady in Broadway musicals in full flight. She first won plaudits six years ago as Belle in "Beauty and the Beast," and they continue to flow with her current starring role as Sally Bowles in a revival of "Cabaret." Of all the lessons she absorbed as an Orange County teenager singing in community and high school musicals, Egan says the one she falls back on the most is knowing how to wing it.

Susan Egan, who has toured the country in "Bye Bye Birdie," had big dreams when she was graduated from the Orange County High School for the Arts in 1988. But she says she never expected to be working with Broadway song-and-dance man Tommy Tune.

A stage dominated by large video monitors? This is cabaret? Not in the traditional sense, that's for sure. But there they were, cluttering the small performing platform at the Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Saturday night for the opening of singer Susan Egan's "Wild and Reckless" cabaret performance. Obviously, Egan's presentation was intended to reach beyond the familiar small-stage arena of cabaret. And, given her background, why not?

If there's anything Susan Egan doesn't need, it's an energy pill. The 29-year-old Broadway singing star is a high-voltage performer who dominates a stage with a galvanizing presence not often found in such a relatively young artist. And on Thursday, opening a four-night, six-performance run at Founders Hall in the Orange County Performing Arts Center, Egan was fully charged, her often electrifying presentation the work of a gifted young artist who seems to improve with each outing.

The Broadway singer and dancer stars in the WB sitcom "Nikki." Surprise Sushi Spot: I live in Beachwood Canyon, and there are some great restaurants right on Franklin Avenue. There's Prizzi's, a terrific Italian restaurant. And there's a great Japanese restaurant too, Tai Yo, where they have fantastic sushi. I like taking my friends there because they are always shocked. It's a really small hole in the wall; most people don't even know it's there. I'll usually get sushi and a teriyaki plate.
