Vichi takes over the role of "Feldzeig," the hungry producer, from original cast member Lenny Wolpe, who played his final performance June 3.
Vichi has appeared on Broadway in productions of Annie Get Your Gun, How to Succeed in Business…, Anything Goes, Ain't Broadway Grand and Woman of the Year. He performed the role of the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz and Fezziwig in A Christmas Carol, both at Madison Square Garden, and also appeared opposite Bill Irwin in Scapin at the Roundabout Theatre. His film work includes roles in "City Hall," "Just My Luck" and Spike Lee's "Inside Man."
The Drowsy Chaperone won five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Score. Directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot), the show has music and lyrics by Tony Award winners Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Tony Award winners Bob Martin and Don McKellar.
"To chase his blues away, a modern day musical theatre addict known simply as 'Man in Chair' drops the needle on his favorite cast album — the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage. We are instantly immersed in the hilarious tale of a glamorous bride and her uproarious wedding day, complete with thrills and surprises that take both the cast (literally) and the audience (metaphorically) soaring into the heavens."
Tony Award winner John Glover is the current Man in Chair at the Marquis. Beth Leavel continues in her Tony-winning role as the title character. Visit www.DrowsyChaperone.com for more information.
