Michael Riedel of the New York Post is reporting that Catherine Zeta-Jones, who took home an Oscar for her portrayal of Velma Kelly in the film version of Chicago, has signed on to play Desiree in Trevor Nunn’s A Little Night Music. She will star alongside Broadway musical superstar Angela Lansbury (Mame, Sweeney Todd, Gypsy, Anyone Can Whistle), who will play Madame Armfeldt.
The cast also includes Bradley Dean, Marissa McGowan, Betsy Morgan, Karen Murphy, Jayne Paterson and Kevin David Thomas. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The production, which played very well to London audiences last year, is slated to open on Broadway this December.
