Sunday In The Park With Daniel And Jenna
Exciting news was just reported by Playbill that Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell (pictured) will reprise their Olivier Award-winning roles in the London-to-Broadway transfer of Sunday In The Park With George.
Last year, the Stephen Sondheim tuner was mounted by London's Menier Chocolate Factory to ecstatic acclaim. Stateside, the show will be staged by the Roundabout Theatre Company at Studio 54 next February.
While I've yet to have the privilege of taking in a performance by Evans, I can tell you how captivating Russell can be -- I caught her as Sarah Brown opposite Ewan McGregor in the exquisite Michael Grandage-helmed West End revival of Guys And Dolls. and as I noted, she worked her magic.
Personally, this is the one Broadway revival I won't miss in the 2007-08 Theatrical Season.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
