That’s Anne Miller on top. Don’t her! She was a major star, too!

See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_Babies_(musical) "Sugar Babies opened on Broadway at the Mark Hellinger Theatre on October 8, 1979 and closed on August 28, 1982 after 1,208 performances." Ann Miller starred. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Miller LoC has a Gotfryd portrait of her from the same show at www.loc.gov/pictures/item/2020732866/ The published script books.google.com/books?id=YFWWVMiWZUkC&pg=PA8 lists the original cast, including the chorus of "sugar babies." Edited 1/24 to add chorus names. They were: Laura Booth Christine Busini Diane Duncan Chris Elia Debbie Gornay Barbara Hanks Jeri Kansas Barbara Mandra Robin Manus Faye Fujisaki Mar Linda Ravinsky Michele Rogers Rose Scudder Patti Watson Alternates: Laurie Sloan, Terpsie Toon Broadway Musicals, 1943-2004 by John Stewart books.google.com/books?id=spQ751Sv7TUC&pg=PT4036 has some more details on members of the chorus. A program for the show is at andeverythingelsetoo.blogspot.com/2017/06/sugar-babies-79... Playbill shows a photo of the Sugar Babies chorus in a similar cluster as part of a slideshow. See playbill.com/gallery/look-back-at-ann-miller-and-mickey-r...
Center front, immediately below Mickey Rooney, is Ann Jillian en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Jillian who also had star billing. annjillian.com/index.php Starting to look at the chorus. Jeri Kansas still has a professional website -- www.jerikansas.com/ Edited 1/24 to add link to photo. Flickr user Music Theater CT has photos of her in Gypsy in 2016, e.g. this one by Joe Landry: My guess is that Jeri is just to the left of Mickey Rooney's hat. My guess for Christine Busini is towards the right in the lilac leotard. She continued dancing until about 10 years ago.See www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmL0MXRcrYE for her performing a belly dance. Her website went inactive after May 2014. See a bio from the website at web.archive.org/web/20111223074123/http://christinabellyd.... Edited 1/24 to link to 1975 photo of Christine Busini from Flickr user grayflannelsuit www.flickr.com/photos/grayflannelphotos/8695144647/
Laurie Sloan is now an insurance agent. See agents.farmers.com/ca/oceanside/laurie-sloan-kotecki I can't decide which of the girls in the photo might be her. Linda Ravinsky has also gone by Linda Ravin. See www.filmreference.com/film/29/Linda-Ravin.html dancersover40.org/panel2007.shtml

https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] thank you for the help in identifying stars that were not included in the title as well as chorus members! We will update the records accordingly.
Terpsie Toon (an alternate and less likely to be in the photo) is mentioned as associated with the Lake Placid School of Ballet in a 2013 article: www.adirondackalmanack.com/2013/09/ballerina-adirondacks-... www.lakeplacidarts.org/classes/adult-ballet (not updated since 2019) says, Terpsie Toon's professional career began at Radio City Music Hall with the Rockettes/Ballet Company after which she spent 13 years touring North America in a wide variety of musical theater productions including "Mame," "Makin' Whoopee!," "Chicago," "SeeSaw," "No No Nanette," and "Anything Goes." Her Broadway credits include "Sugar Babies" and "Whoopee" She earned her M.A. from New York University and soon after moved to Lake Placid where she served as the managing director and primary teacher at the Lake Placid School of Ballet and Dance for nine years before retiring last summer. While in Lake Placid she served as the primary choreographer for the North Country Ballet Ensemble's annual productions of "The Nutcracker." She has also staged and choreographed every musical at Lake Placid High School since 2011, and for the Community Theater Players such shows as "Chicago," "Annie," "Evita" and "Little Mermaid." She says she enjoys being retired "because I've never been so busy in my life."
Ann Miller deserves recognition she was part of Hollywood’s golden era too
Mickey must have been on cloud nine :^)
