Melissa Errico, who was acclaimed for her performance as Dot in the 2002 Kennedy Center staging of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday in the Park with George, will take on her first major Sondheim role in New York in 2013 when she stars as Clara in Classic Stage Company's production of the Tony-winning Passion.

About her latest stage role, Tony nominee Errico told Playbill.com April 19, "I am beyond thrilled to be part of a new production of Passion to be directed by John Doyle. I thought I was going to have to wait until summer to get an 'official' casting decision, but Mr. Doyle was very kind to put me out of misery earlier than expected with this great news. I'm one, among many fellow actors, who feel privileged to do Stephen Sondheim's shows, which, as actors, we absolutely revere."

Errico will be joined in the John Doyle-directed production by three-time Tony nominee Judy Kuhn as Fosca, a role Kuhn first investigated to wonderful reviews in the same 2002 Kennedy Center Sondheim Celebration. 

Kuhn, who also received a glowing notice in the New York Times for her recent Feinstein's engagement, told Playbill.com, "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to revisit this piece. It's an amazing part, and the material is so rich. I never felt like I was done with it when I did it before. And, I am thrilled to have the chance to work with John Doyle. I love his work, and everyone I know who has worked with him adores him!"
