Jack Noseworthy, who in recent years played the title role in Pippin at the Paper Mill Playhouse, will play Pip in a musical version of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, which world-premieres at the Utah Shakespearean Festival July 1-Aug. 28.


The role of Pip was shared by John Mills and Tony Wager in David Lean's famous 1946 film version and played by Ethan Hawke in Alfonso Cuaron's 1998 remake. Noseworthy's Broadway credits include Jerome Robbins' Broadway and Sweet Smell of Success.

Jules Aaron will direct the piece in Cedar City, UT. It goes into rehearsal May 17. Great Expectations: The Musical has music by Richard Winzeler, lyrics by Steve Lane and book by Brian VanDerWilt and Steve Lozier, adapted by Margaret Hoorneman. Visit www.bard.org.
