13. First Woman in Triangle

 

The 1968-69 Triangle production, A Different Kick, marked a turning point in the history of this musical theater organization, as its cast for the first time included a woman—critical language student Sue Jean Lee.  Many alumni walked out of the theatre the moment she appeared on stage to sing, “I’ve Got a Tiger by the Tail.”  Undiscouraged, Lee was one of nine “critters” who transferred to the newly-coeducational University for her senior year in 1969, becoming one of the first female Princeton graduates.
