Davidson (State Fair, Oklahoma!, "The Happiest Millionaire," "Hollywood Squares") will step into the role of Bellamy, the father to Luisa. He played two engagements earlier this summer as Henry. Read Playbill.com's summer 2012 interview with Davidson.
"Oh my goodness! I am so excited! I love the show so much and the cast is so talented," Davidson said in a statement. "Seriously, if you get a chance to take off and come to NYC, don't miss The Fantasticks! It is the classic of American musical theatre. And I'll be right there in Times Square!"
The Fantasticks is the world's longest-running musical, having played a record-breaking run of more than 17,000 performances in Greenwich Village. Harvey Schmidt wrote the music, and Tom Jones penned the book and lyrics.
Book writer and lyricist Jones staged the revival of The Fantasticks, which has choreography by Janet Watson.
The Fantasticks resumed performances Off-Broadway at the Snapple Theater Center's Jerry Orbach Theater June 16, 2008. The Fantasticks is produced by Pat Flicker Addiss, Al Parinello and Catherine Russell.
