Hamilton tour alum Jordan Donica, Hello, Dolly!’s Linda Mugleston, and Allan Corduner (Titanic) have been tapped for the upcoming Broadway revival of My Fair Lady. They join a previously announced lineup that includes Lauren Ambrose as Eliza Doolittle and Harry Hadden-Paton as Professor Henry Higgins in the Bartlett Sher-helmed production.
Donica, who currently plays the dual roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the first national tour of Hamilton, will play Freddy Eynsford-Hill; Mugleston, who plays Mrs. Rose and understudies the title role in the current Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, will take on the role of Mrs. Pearce; Broadway and West End alum Corduner will play Colonel Pickering.
The cast also includes previously announced Game of Thrones alum Diana Rigg and Norbert Leo Butz as Mrs. Higgins and Alfred P. Doolittle, respectively.
The Lincoln Center Theater production of My Fair Lady will begin March 15, 2018, at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, where the musical is set to open officially April 19.
Featuring a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and a score by Frederick Loewe, the 1956 musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion tells the story of linguistics expert Henry Higgins and the cockney flower girl he is determined to transform into a proper, dignified woman. The score includes such well-known showtunes as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”
Donica has appeared on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera; his additional regional credits include South Pacific, The Greenshow, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Romeo and Juliet.
Mugleston’s Broadway credits include Beautiful, On the Twentieth Century, Cinderella, Anything Goes, Young Frankenstein, and Wonderful Town.
Corduner returns to Broadway after appearing in Titanic and Serious Money; he has also been seen Off-Broadway in The Heart of Art and The Comedians.
Lincoln Center Theater’s My Fair Lady will feature choreography by Christopher Gattelli and will have sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Marc Salzberg, and casting by Telsey + Co. Music Director Ted Sperling will conduct a 29-piece orchestra performing the musical’s original musical arrangements by Robert Russell Bennett and Phil Lang, plus dance arrangements by Trude Rittmann.
