By age 18, Ms. Reimer she was a professional singer. To land her part in Kiss Me, Kate, she auditioned before composer Cole Porter himself. A pretty blonde with a fresh-faced, all-American beauty, Mrs. Springer's other Broadway credits of this period included Sigmund Romberg's My Romance (1948) and Three Wishes for Jamie (1952), a Ralph Blane musical comedy staged by Abe Burrows.
