Christine Baranski RSVPs for MTC's Regrets Only
Great news for New Yorkers who had been banking on seeing Christine Baranski this year. The Tony-winning actress has been officially confirmed for Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere mounting of Paul Rudnick's comedy, Regrets Only.
Hopes were dashed earlier this summer for her titular turn as Mame to reach Broadway, but Baranski had indicated last month that she was in talks with MTC for a role in the Christopher Ashley-helmed vehicle. Finally, Baranski will be back where she belongs: on the New York stage.
Regrets Only is described as a:
"...comedy of Manhattan manners, exploring the very latest topics in marriage and friendship. The setting: a Park Avenue penthouse. The players: a powerhouse attorney, his deliriously social wife and their closest friend, one of the world’s most staggeringly successful fashion designers. Add a daughter’s engagement, some major gowns, the President of the United States, and stir."
Regrets Only begins previews on October 19 and opens November 14 at MTC's City Center Stage I. Joining Baranski will be Diane Davis (Festen), Tony-winner George Grizzard (A Delicate Balance), Jackie Hoffman (Hairspray), Siân Phillips (Marlene) and David Rasche (Speed-the-Plow).
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
