Davie made her Broadway debut as young Edie in the Tony-winning musical Grey Gardens and later took over in Kander and Ebb's Curtains. She will join Ron Bohmer (Phantom of the Opera, Ragtime), who was previously announced to portray post-impressionist painter Seurat in the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.

Tony Award winners Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin originated the roles on Broadway, respectively.

Rob Ruggiero, who staged Looped and High on Broadway, will stage Sunday in the Park With George, which will run Jan. 4-29, 2012.

Here's how the Rep bills the musical: "Shimmering with love and light, this unique, inventive musical is one of the most acclaimed shows of our time. Inspired by the life and work of enigmatic 19th century impressionist painter Georges Seurat, this Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece explores the complexity of life and the art of understanding it. Stephen Sondheim’s soaring score and insightful lyrics intertwine with Seurat’s distinctive art to create a moving, poetic drama, dot by dot."
