The 1982 production helped boost the stardom of Bob Hoskins and Julia McKenzie as Nathan Detroit and Miss Adelaide, respectively. This time around, those roles are being played by Henry Goodman and Imelda Staunton.
The Tony-winning 1950 musical is based on Damon Runyon's tales of two love stories set in the world of New York gamblers and strippers -- and the evangelists who try to save their souls.
Returning to the production will be Clarke Peters as Sky Masterson and John Normington as Arvide Abernathy. Newcomers include Joanna Riding as Miss Sarah Brown and Clive Rowe as Nicely-Nicely Johnson.
The production is scheduled to run through March 29, 1997.
