Contrary to previous reports, Ken Page will continue "indefinitely" with the cast of Broadway's It Ain't Nothing but the Blues. Page joined the show to replace Tony nominee and co-creator, Ron Taylor, when the latter suffered a stroke and left the production. Producer Eric Krebs told Playbill On-Line (July 23), "Ken Page will be with the show indefinitely" and that "Ron Taylor is at home recovering and creating some new projects".

Taylor was expected to return to the show when the company makes its move to Broadway's Ambassador Theatre, opening there Sept. 8.

Page began his stint filling in for Taylor July 1. He's previously appeared in the Broadway shows Cats, Ain't Misbehavin' and The Wiz.
