News   Titanic's Garrison Spends His Vacation on Band Feb. 12-15
 
David Garrison, who has been playing the lead role of Ismay for nearly a year in Broadway's Titanic, is about to take a two-week vacation. But an ocean voyage or a trip to Tahiti does not appear to be on the horizon for this veteran actor, who was a regular on TV's "Married with Children" and whose Broadway credits include A Day in Hollywood/ A Night in the Ukraine.

David Garrison, who has been playing the lead role of Ismay for nearly a year in Broadway's Titanic, is about to take a two-week vacation. But an ocean voyage or a trip to Tahiti does not appear to be on the horizon for this veteran actor, who was a regular on TV's "Married with Children" and whose Broadway credits include A Day in Hollywood/ A Night in the Ukraine.

It turns out that Garrison is taking a busman's holiday -- he's been cast in the first show of the season at the N.Y. City Center's "Encores!" series, Strike Up the Band.

"I'm still considering this as my vacation," said Garrison in an interview with Playbill On-Line. "Of course, I'll have to put on sunscreen and set up my sand chair onstage." (We just hope the other performers -- including Lynn Redgrave, Philip Bosco, Jere Shea and Judy Kuhn -- don't mind the smell of cocoa butter!)

Strike Up the Band, with songs by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by George S. Kaufman, is being directed by John Rando and runs Feb. 12-15. For tickets, call (212) 581-1212.
