Interview: Carly Mercedes Dyer, Erma in Anything Goes

Posted by

Carly is currently reprising her Olivier nominated performance as Erma in Kathleen Marshall’s production of Anything Goes at the Barbican Theatre. 

Since previously joining us on Series 2 Episode 6 of In The Frame, Carly hasn’t stopped! She was cast as Jane Seymour in the UK tour of Six, but sadly never made her debut due to a lockdown. Her recent credits include Shug Avery in The Color Purple (Leicester Curve – Digital), June in Gypsy in Concert (Alexandra Palace Theatre) and Cassie in A Chorus Line (Leicester Curve). Carly received huge acclaim for her performance as Erma in Anything Goes, winning a WhatsOnStage Award and receiving an Olivier Award nomination.
