Please hang on for the surprise ride!
As reported in Broadway World:
Tony Nominee Stephen Bogardus (Falsettos, Love! Valor! Compassion!) Luba Mason (Chicago, How to Succeed), Anastasia Barzee (Jekyll & Hyde, Miss Saigon) and 25 others have joined two-time Tony Nominee Vivian Reed (Bubbling Brown Sugar, Marie Christine) in the workshop cast of One for My Baby, the new book musical with a Harold Arlen score.
Bogardus plays the brusque business partner of Reed’s self-proclaimed “queen of the nightclubs,” Panama Jones, as they fight to preserve their post-World War II nightclub world that is threatened by underworld figures and the changing habits of high society.
Mason takes on the role of a glamorous society woman trapped in a romantic triangle that includes her new infatuation, played by Damon Kirsche (Encores! Ziegfeld Follies of 1936, Strike Up the Band), and her devious best friend, played by Barzee.
Broadway performers Jennifer Cody (Shrek, The Pajama Game, Grease), Robert Hartwell (Nice Work if You Can Get It), Todd Lawson (Summer and Smoke), Matt Loehr (Movin’ Out, Mary Poppins), Jenelle Lynn Randall (All Shook Up), Michael Scott (110 in the Shade, Follies) and Julie Tolivar (Curtains, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) fill out the principal parts.
