Charlie Stemp, who made a splash in London with his Olivier Award-nominated performance in Half a Sixpence, will make his Broadway debut in Hello, Dolly!.
Stemp will take on the role of Barnaby Tucker; he steps in for Taylor Trensch, who will go on to play the title character in Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway. He begins January 20, 2018—the same day that incoming headliners Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber will take their first bows.
Trensch will play his final performance January 14, bidding farewell to the production with Tony winners Bette Midler and David Hyde Pierce.
Prior to his performance as Arthur Kipps in Half a Sixpence, Stemp made his professional debut in the London production of Wicked and went on to appear in the international tour of Mamma Mia!.
Stemp, Peters, and Garber will join a cast that also includes Gavin Creel, who won a Tony for his performance as Cornelius Hackl, Kate Baldwin as Irene Molloy, Beanie Feldstein as Minnie Fay, Will Burton as Ambrose Kemper, Melanie Moore as Ermengarde, and Tony nominee Jennifer Simard as Ernestina.
