The Westport Country Playhouse production of I Do! I Do!, starring Tony Award nominee Kate Baldwin and Drama Desk nominee Lewis Cleale, has added an additional three performances.



The Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt musical began performances Aug. 10 and was originally scheduled to end its run Aug. 28. Performances have now been added Sept. 2, 3 and 4 at 8 PM.

Susan H. Schulman (The Sound of Music, Sunset Boulevard, Little Women) directs the intimate musical that spans 50 years in the marriage of its central characters, Agnes and Michael.

Baldwin earned a Best Actress Tony Award nomination for her work in the Broadway revival of Finian's Rainbow. She starred in the world premiere of the Hal Prince-Susan Stroman musical Paradise Found at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London earlier this summer.

Michael Lichtefeld choreographs with musical direction by Joel Fram. The design team also includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Devon Painter (costume design), Philip Rosenberg (lighting design) and Domonic Sack (sound design).

Jones and Schmidt are best known for their long-running Off-Broadway musical The Fantasticks. They also have created the musicals 110 in the Shade, Celebration, Philemon, Mirette, Collette Collage and Grover's Corners.
