The Roundabout Tony Award-winning revival is currently scheduled to tread the Broadway boards through Jan. 4, 2004.
Krakowski, who is known to television audiences for her turn as the secretary on "Ally McBeal," won the 2003 Tony Award for Featured Actress in a Musical. The actress — who dazzled audiences with her aerial entrance to her "A Call From The Vatican" number — was also recently involved with a workshop of the musical Sweet Charity produced by Barry and Fran Weissler with Clear Channel Entertainment.
Banderas will leave the staging, Oct. 5 to begin pre-production on the sequel to "The Mask of Zorro." John Stamos is among the actors currently being considered to replace him. Rebecca Luker (The Music Man) was just announced to replace Benanti as Claudia, Sept. 2. Benanti leaves the Roundabout production to begin rehearsals for her next Broadway stint, the upcoming Manhattan Theatre Club staging of Richard Greenberg's The Violet Hour. No other replacements have been confirmed.
