It is described as a fresh new take on a classic 1920's musical farce. Debuting in the Spring of 2012, the show's opening cast features lead stars Matthew Broderick (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Producers, Brighton Beach Memoirs) and Kelli O'Hara (The Pajama Game, South Pacific, The Light in the Piazza). And the show is directed and choreographed by the eminent Kathleen Marshall, most recently represented on Broadway by the award-winning revival of Anything Goes, for which she won the Tony for Best Choreography.
