The company also includes Will Burton as Ambrose Kemper, Beanie Feldstein as Minnie Fay, Melanie Moore as Ermengarde, Jennifer Simard as Ernestina, and Taylor Trensch as Barnaby Tucker.
The Jerry Zaks-helmed production opened at the Shubert Theatre April 20 and immediately shattered box-office records. On May 2, the revival received ten Tony Award nominations, including the aforementioned nods for its four principals, as well as Best Revival of a Musical and Best Direction of a Musical.
