Link has been cast in the title role with Kushnier as Judas. The production, which plays the 7,700-seat outdoor amphitheatre, will run July 11-17. Link and Kushnier also appeared together in a staged reading of American Duet, a "concert play" by Marcus Hummon that is currently in negotiations for an Off-Broadway opening in 2005. Link was also Kushnier's standby as Radames in the national tour of Aida; both actors are currently at work on solo albums.
