CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard reports:

A supporting cast of seasoned theater pros is coming together for the splashy Broadway revival of Meredith Willson’s classic The Music Man, with four Tony Award winners signing on to join stars Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster in the fall 2020 production.

Jefferson Mays will play the pompous mayor of River City, Iowa, with Jayne Houdyshell as his overbearing wife Mrs. Shinn. Marie Mullen will appear as Mrs. Paroo, the Irish mother of Foster’s character, town librarian and part-time piano teacher Marian, and Shuler Hensley will play Marcellus Washburn, an old friend and former shill of “Professor” Harold Hill, the con man posing as a traveling salesman, to be played by Jackman.

Produced by Scott Rudin, Barry Diller and David Geffen, the revival reunites the key creative team behind the blockbuster 2017 Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, led by director Jerry Zaks and choreographer Warren Carlyle.
