Tony Award nominee Anita Gillette (Chapter Two, Brighton Beach Memoirs) and Golden Globe nominee Lorenzo Lamas ("Falcon Crest") will be part of Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston's 44th consecutive summer season, which will kick off June 15 in Massachusetts.



Lamas will star as director and choreographer Zach in the company's production of A Chorus Line, which runs June 15-24. Leslie Woodies, who starred as Cassie in the national and international tours of A Chorus Line and was seen on Broadway in On Your Toes, will direct and re-create Michael Bennett's original choreography. Baayork Lee, who created the role of Connie Wong on Broadway and choreographed the 2006 Broadway revival, will also be on hand to discuss the show's concept and popularity.

Following A Chorus Line, Gillette will be featured as overbearing mother Mae Peterson in Bye Bye Birdie July 13-22. Larry Sousa will direct and choreograph the production; Rachel Bertone is assistant choreographer.

My Fair Lady, also directed by Sousa, will conclude the summer season. The production, which runs Aug. 10-19, will feature Rick Hilsabeck (Billy Elliot) as Henry Higgins and Sarah Pfisterer (Phantom of the Opera, Show Boat) as Eliza Doolittle. Susan Chebookjian will choreograph.
