In a statement, Cardle said, “I am truly sorry that circumstances beyond our control have led to my departure from Falsettos. It has been such a hard decision for us to make, as I know [director-choreographer] Tara Overfield-Wilkinson is going to deliver the most incredible show. It’s a complex and exciting show, and I can’t wait to watch the world-class cast bring this to life at The Other Palace.”
Montague’s credits include Kiss Me, Kate; Fat Friends; School of Rock; Funny Girl; and Urinetown.
Performances will continue through November 23; opening night is set for September 5.
The cast will also feature Natasha J. Barnes as Cordelia, Daniel Boys as Marvin, Gemma Knight-Jones as Charlotte, Laura Pitt-Pulford as Trina, Oliver Savile as Whizzer, and Albert Atack as Jason.
