Christina Marie Norrup, PJ Benjamin, Alison Briner, Lovette George and Joel Blum, who star in the Berkshire Theatre Festival's U.S premiere of A Saint She Ain't, will pick up and pack out after Aug. 10, when the musical by lyricist-librettist Dick Vosburgh and composer Denis King ends its run.
The show had a preview July 30 and opened July 31. It will now move to the Westport Country Playhouse, where it will run Aug. 28-Sept. 14.
Also in the cast are Jay Russell, Roland Rusinek and Jason Gilman.
Norrup replaces the previously announced Kate Levering of 42nd Street and Thou Shalt Not fame. Levering is reportedly returning to the cast of Broadway's 42nd Street.
Blum is well remembered from his nimble-footed turns in Steel Pier and Show Boat. PJ Benjamin played Amos in Broadway's Chicago. Writer Dick Vosburgh penned much of the book and lyrics for the Broadway musical concoction, A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine.
Eric Hill will direct the "Hollywood-inspired musical" in which each character is based on renowned Tinseltown figures, such as Mae West and W.C. Fields. The play, roughly based on Molière's Le Cocu Imaginaire, concerns a couple of young lovers who mistakenly believe the other is being untrue.
A Saint She Ain't debuted at the UK's King's Head Theatre a couple seasons back and then transferred to the West End.
