Nancy Opel (Cinderella), Matthew Saldivar (Peter and the Starcatcher), and David Josefsberg (Motown The Musical) will join the previously announced Rob McClure, Brynn O'Malley, and Tony Danza in the upcoming Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas, producers have announced. All six actors appeared in principal roles in the musical’s 2013 world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse.
Featuring a score by Jason Robert Brown and book by Andrew Bergman, Honeymoon in Vegas is directed by Gary Griffin and choreographed by Denis Jones. The creative team includes Anna Louizos (scenic design), Brian C. Hemesath (costume design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), Scott Lehrer and Drew Levy (sound design), Don Sebesky (orchestrations), Larry Blank and Charlie Rosen (additional orchestrations), Tom Murray (musical director), and Charles G. LaPointe (hair and wig design).
Inspired by the film comedy of the same title (which featured screenplay by Bergman), the musical stars McClure as the commitment-phobic Jack Singer, who travels to Sin City to elope with his longtime girlfriend Betsy (O’Malley) and escape the curse of his long-dead mother. Complications ensue with the arrival of Tommy Korman (Danza), a widowed gambler who takes a shine to Betsy, on account of her resemblance to his late wife.
Honeymoon in Vegas begins performances November 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, with opening night set for January 15.
