The York Theatre Company has canceled the Jan. 22, 1999 performance or its production of Little By Little , owing to star Darrin Baker taking ill. The York previously canceled a show on Sunday, Jan. 17, for similar reasons (co-star Christiane Noll was sick).
Liz Larsen, Christiane Noll and Baker complete the romantic triangle at the center of Little by Little , the Brad Ross-Ellen Greenfield-Hal Hackady musical which opened at the York Theatre Jan. 21, 1999.
Little by Little , a sung-through piece, follows a man and two women from childhood friendship to the love triangle which evolves as they grow into adults. Brad Ross wrote the music, while Ellen Greenfield and Hal Hackady penned the lyrics. Hackady, known for his playful wordplay, wrote Goodtime Charlie , among other works. Greenfield and Annette Jolles -- who also directs -- authored the original story.
Noll is also recently participating in a new workshop of the Barry Manilow musical Harmony .
Larsen is best known for her The Most Happy Fella performance, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award. She has also been seen on Broadway in Damn Yankees and Starmites, and Off-Broadway in A New Brain. Baker's credits include The Scarlet Pimpernel and Sunset Boulevard. Noll, of course, comes straight from Jekyll & Hyde.
