Directed by Larry Moss with choreography by Lee Martino, the musical will play the Brentwood Theatre Dec. 2-14. Joining the previously announced Vicki Lewis and Jason Alexander are Lea Thompson ("Caroline in the City," Cabaret) and Patrick Cassidy (42nd Street, Assassins). The latter replaces Steven Weber, who had been announced to be part of the production.
In a statement Alexander, who is the artistic director of Reprise Theatre Company, said, "We regret the loss of Steven Weber, who has had to pull out due to unexpected scheduling conflicts. However, we are thrilled that he will be so ably replaced by my old friend, Patrick Cassidy."
I Love My Wife features book and lyrics by Michael Stewart and music by Cy Coleman. The musical, according to press notes, "plants its feet in its present — the seventies — unfolding on Christmas Eve in suburban Trenton, New Jersey, where two married couples who have been close friends since high school find themselves contemplating a ménage-à-quatre."
