Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse has announced the cast for the West Coast premiere of Matthew Lopez's The Legend of Georgia McBride. Original New York cast member Matt McGrath will return in the role of Miss Tracy Mills for director Mike Donahue and choreographer Paul McGill, who led the creative team for MCC Theater's 2015 production at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
