Dawn Didawick has been working in the theatre and on film for most of her life. Raised in Virginia, she and Harry met for the first time in Louisville in 1976, when she was starring in the musical "Vanities", and he was called upon to choreograph it. They dated for about two years, and then Harry proposed to her in Louisville, KY. They were married Sept 19, 1978, in Boston. They've been very happily married for over thirty years.
The pair have starred side by side in many theatre productions over their years together. In Christmas 2001 they played husband and wife in Caught in the Net, at Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami, Florida. Harry played a fellow with a happy marriage and nice kids-- in two different families. The play centered around the hijinks that ensue when his children from both sides meet on the internet. Dawn played one of his wives.
Recently, they could both be seen starring in "The Bear", one of four parts to the play Chekhov X 4, at the Newplace Studio Theatre, produced by their longtime allies the Antaeus Project. Harry and Dawn are both founding members of this theatre company, which hosts many established names from the stage and screen, and has been staging numerous productions in the Los Angeles area for over twenty years.
Dawn has appeared in many stage productions and TV shows, most recently in the holiday offering staring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, Christmas With The Kranks. She also starred as Rosalind the secretary in the hit Julia Roberts film Erin Brockovich. In 1998, she and Harry also got signed for the Randa Haines musical romance comedy Dance With Me, starring Chayanne and pop diva Vanessa Williams. Harry played one of the instructors at a dance school, and Dawn was going to play one of the school's attendees. However, a disagreement between the film's director and the cinematographer resulted in the cutting of all Dawn's scenes. She can be glimpsed (if you look reeeeal quick) beneath the closing credits, in one of the discarded scenes as a clothing store owner where Vanessa and Chayanne are shopping for clothes.
This is most definitely not all there is to know about this lady-- watch this space for more to come. :)
