And, in "takeover" news, three-time Tony nominee Rebecca Luker will join the cast of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella for a limited engagement beginning Sept. 6. Luker will step into the role of Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, Marie, the part created by Tony winner Victoria Clark, through Jan. 19, 2014. (Clark is taking a temporary leave for a new project to be announced.)… A few days earlier, on Sept. 3, Jill Paice and Craig Bierko will become Matilda's new Miss Honey and Miss Trunchbull, respectively; they succeed original Tony-nominated stars Bertie Carvel and Lauren Ward, who play their final performances Sept. 1.

Whether you prefer your evenings in a cozy cabaret or in a Broadway house with a full orchestra, get out there and catch one of your favorite gals!
