Heading for a Wedding: Marc Kudisch and Shannon Lewis Tie the Knot
24 Oct 2011
Shannon Lewis and Marc Kudisch
Broadway theatre couple Marc Kudisch and Shannon Lewis are getting married in an intimate wedding in the presence of family and a few close friends the evening of Oct. 24 in Key West, FL.
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."
Kudisch's Broadway credits include The Apple Tree, Assassins, Bells Are Ringing, The Wild Party, High Society, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Beauty and the Beast and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. His Off-Broadway credits include A Minister's Wife (the recording of which was recently released), The Glorious Ones, See What I Wanna See and The Thing About Men.
