Tony Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, who last appeared on Broadway as LBJ in All the Way, may return to the New York stage in a revival of the Richard Adler-Jerry Ross musical Damn Yankees, according to BroadwayJournal.
The producing team is led by Jeffrey Richards, who was also involved in a 2008 City Center Encores! staging of the musical that starred Cheyenne Jackson, Sean Hayes, and Jane Krakowski.
Richards declined to discuss Cranston’s involvement in the Broadway revival, but stated that Tony-winning director-choreographer Kathleen Marshall was attached.
Cranston previously alluded to his involvement in a “reimagining of an old chestnut” during a July 2016 interview with Robert Wuhl.
Richards’ producing partners on the revival are Scott Landis, Jerry Frankel, and Jay and Cindy Gutterman.
No timeline was revealed.
