Kudisch, a three-time Tony Award nominee for Thoroughly Modern Millie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and 9 to 5, will return to the Second Stage Off-Broadway production of the new musical Blue Flower, now in previews, on Oct. 27. Lewis, a veteran of Broadway's The People in the Picture, Curtains, Sweet Charity, The Look of Love, Contact, Fosse and more, will return to Broadway's How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Oct. 28.
Kudisch, the baritone who is one of the major leading men of American musical theatre, said in a statement, "It was incredibly cool for everyone creatively involved in The Blue Flower and everyone at Second Stage to understand the value of my personal life along with professional life, and contractually allow me these days off for my wedding. It's a very low-key — get the pun? — affair and we will be well tanned because the weather here is ridiculous. Thank you all for your well wishes."
