110 in the Shade is a musical take on Nash's play The Rainmaker by the team that created The Fantasticks. As production notes reveal, "The mercurial Starbuck (Kazee) promises rain for a drought-stricken town and passion for the stalwart but resigned Lizzie (McDonald)." Cullum plays the role of patriarch H. C. Curry.

Lonny Price (A Class Act, "Master Harold"...and the boys) directs the Harvey Schmidt, Tom Jones and N. Richard Nash musical that began previews April 13 for the Roundabout Theatre Company at Broadway's Studio 54. The show officially opened May 9 for a limited run which has extended two weeks through July 29.

Stars McDonald and Cullum were just nominated for Tony Awards for their work as well as orchestrator Jonathan Tunick, lighting designer Christopher Akerlind and the production itself for Best Revival of a Musical.

The cast also features Broadway newcomer Chris Butler (Yellowman - L.A. Ovation Award), Carla Duren (Hairspray Las Vegas) and Broadway veterans Christopher Innvar (Les Misérables) and Bobby Steggert (Master Harold…and the boys).

The ensemble also includes Elisa Van Duyne, Colleen Fitzpatrick, Valisia Lekae Little, Darius Nichols, Mamie Parris, Devin Richards, Michael Scott, Will Swenson, Matt Wall and Betsy Wolfe.

Tickets are on sale at the Studio 54 Box Office, 254 West 54th Street, by phone at (212) 719-1300 or online at roundabouttheatre.org.
