Has Fallen Angels Fallen Off Broadway 2002-03 Roster?

News   Has Fallen Angels Fallen Off Broadway 2002-03 Roster? The new production of Noel Coward's Fallen Angels, backed by producer Bill Kenwright and promised for the spring, may have lost its chance to become an entry in the 2002-03 Broadway season.

The New York Times first reported Kenwright's plans, saying the show was aimed at a March or April bow on Broadway with an American cast. Kenwright told the broadsheet he was talking to the Shubert Organization about a theatre. However, as of Feb. 20, all the remaining Shubert playhouses have been claimed by other producers. The Plymouth was given to the long homeless Long Day's Journey Into Night, the Ethel Barrymore was granted to Enchanted April and the Booth, the only vacant Shubert property remaining, is said to be the future home of the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Master Harold...and the Boys. Calls to Kenwright's office in London were not returned.

Fallen Angels was seen in London in fall 2000, with Felicity Kendal and Frances de la Tour heading the cast. The play is about two women sitting, drinking and waiting for the same man. The Times mentioned Mercedes Ruehl and Christine Baranski as casting possibilities.
