Broadway is seeing two examples of slow-motion "reunions" of New York casts.

* Karen Ziemba and David Garrison starred as husband and wife in the 1996 Off-Broadway revival of the Tom Jones - Harvey Schmidt two character musical I Do! I Do!. The two are now starring as the leads in two musicals opening across the street from one another on successive nights -- Garrison in Titanic and Ziemba in Steel Pier.

* Nell Carter, Andre De Shields and Ken Page represented three-fifths of the legendary 1978 original cast of Ain't Misbehavin'. Carter is currently starring in the Annie revival as Miss Hannigan; De Shields plays Jester in the new musical Play On!; Page is preparing to play the Cowardly Lion in the stage adaptation of The Wizard of Oz at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden with Roseanne in May.

A fourth from that cast, Charlayne Woodard, did a one-woman show, Neat, Off-Broadway earlier this season.
