Foster leaves one nebbish role — Seymour in Little Shop — to play another introvert, the Producers' accountant Leo Bloom opposite Brad Oscar as Max Bialystock. Roger Bart most recently played Leo, a role originated on Broadway by Matthew Broderick. Bart left June 13.

The Mel Brooks smash at the St. James Theatre features 2001 Tony Award winner Gary Beach (Roger DeBris), John Treacy Eagan (Franz Liebkind), Brad Musgrove (Carmen Ghia) and Angie Schworer (Ulla).

Bart currently appears with Broderick in the feature film, "The Stepford Wives."

Foster appeared in Brodway's Grease!, Footloose, Les Miserables, Urinetown and the concert of King David. He is heard on the studio recording of the little-known Vincent Youmans musical, "Through the Years," on the PS Classics label. Foster is also a librettist, having penned the stage musical, Summer of '42 and two new projects: Bonnie and Clyde and Fearless.
