Stars Announced for Upcoming Broadway Season

Some major names and openings have been announced for the upcoming Broadway season, according to the New York Times.

First, Bernadette Peters, Jan Maxwell, Danny Burstein and Ron Raines are set to reprise their starring roles in the Kennedy Center production of Stephen Sondheim's iconic Follies when it opens September 12 at the Marquis Theater. The run will be limited, so be sure to nab tickets for your clients quick.

In winter, a revamped version of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, starring Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis and David Alan Grier, will finally return to Broadway. (Those who can't wait can catch the production first at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where the show is slated to run from August 17 to October 2.) Producers announced on Wednesday that the show — which plays down its roots as an opera and features a reworked book by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks — will begin previews on December 17 at the Richard Rodgers Theater, and will open on January 12.

And the revised revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, set to star crooner Harry Connick Jr., will open December 11 at the St. James Theater. No word yet about who will play David (the character formerly known as Daisy—the show has really been revised) in the production.
