Len Cariou Joins Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, Patrick Wilson, Sierra Boggess for One-Off 'Guys and Dolls' at Carnegie Hall
Full casting has been announced for Carnegie Hall's one-off concert performance of Guys and Dolls on April 3 at 7:30 p.m. And, following in the well-established tradition of classically-inflected musical theater concerts, the line-up is stellar.
Nathan Lane headlines as Nathan Detroit (well, they share the same first name so that makes sense). It's a role he played in a famous Jerry Zaks-directed Broadway production back in 1992. Patrick Wilson joins him as Sky Masterson (Wilson is well-versed in musicals including the Phantom of the Opera movie). Len Cariou, creator of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, is luxury casting as aged Arvide. Megan Mullally, best-known from the television comedy Will and Grace, plays Miss Adelaide--a role she was first mooted to play opposite Ewan MacGregor a decade ago (though in the event she didn't after all join that production). Sarah Brown is Andrew Lloyd Webber favorite Sierra Boggess (she created the role of Christine in the fine Phantom sequel Love Never Dies).
