He joins a cast of 37 headed by Laura Benanti, Harry Hadden-Paton, Rosemary Harris, Allan Corduner, Christian Dante White, Linda Mugleston, and Clarke Thorell.

Benanti recently extended her time as Eliza Doolittle through July 7, Hadden-Paton is scheduled to play Henry Higgins through July 6.

Most recently seen Off-Broadway as the musical director of Fiasco Theatre’s Merrily We Roll Along at Roundabout, Gemignani returns to the Broadway stage having starred in last season’s Carousel as Enoch Snow, which earned him a Tony nomination. He has also previously appeared in Violet, Chicago, Les Misérables, Sweeney Todd, Assassins, The People in the Picture, and Sunday in the Park With George.
