Add another show to next April 2021 on Broadway.
The revival of the baseball musical “Take me Out” has set March 22nd for previews and April 22 for opening night. The show was supposed to open this past spring but got clamped down thanks to COVID.
“Suits” star Patrick J. Adams and Jesse Williams star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson from “Modern Family” is featured. Scott Ellis directs.
The full creative team for “Take Me Out: includes scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Fitz Patton, and casting by Jim Carnahan, CSA.
Add “Take Me Out” to a plethora of shows that will open next April including “Plaza Suite” with Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker.
One show that is skipping April and the Tony Awards deadline next season is Hugh Jackman as “The Music Man” with Sutton Foster. Why? It’s not like “The Music Man” is so hard to put on stage. Jackman and Foster probably sing it in their sleep.
Other theater news: Scott Rudin thinks Dustin Hoffman is going to play the stage manager in a new production of “Our Town.” I love Dustin Hoffman, but he’s had some #MeToo issues that will have to be cleared up with Rudin doesn’t want demonstrations. Also, David Cromer already directed the seminal “Our Town” on Barrow Street. If he’s not going to direct this, what’s the point?
