The Off-Broadway revival of The Marvelous Wonderettes is getting a reprieve after playing what was to have been its closing night performance January 6 on Theatre Row. The show’s producer, Tom D’Angora, has announced that the production will return for a weekly Sunday performance, beginning February 17 at 3 PM.
Recent cast members Kristen Alderson (One Life to Live), Michelle Dowdy (Hairspray), Amy Hillner Larsen (Hairspray), and Maggie McDowell (Disaster, Kinky Boots) will remain with the production. They are joined by Amy Toporek as the production’s understudy.
