‘Bullets Over Broadway’ Adds Tony Award Winner to the Cast


Bullets-Over-Broadway-2014The producers of the upcoming Woody Allen film-turned-stage-musical, Bullets Over Broadway, have announced Karen Ziemba will play “Eden Brent”.  She won the Tony Award for Contact.

This production reunites Ziemba and Susan Stroman, who collaborated on Contact, Crazy For You, and Steel Pier.  In the press release, Ziemba said, “To work with her again and be in a room with her is so exciting.”

Five-time Tony winner Stroman will direct and choreograph this madcap thespian crime caper, which starts preview performances March 11, 2014, at the St. James Theatre and officially opens April 10.  The musical will feature a full orchestra playing popular tunes from the roarin’ 1920’s.

The cast of thousands — actually, 29, which is huge by Broadway standards nowadays — includes Marin Mazzie of Next to Normal, Vincent Pastore of “The Sopranos”, Betsy Wolfe from The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Lenny Wolpe of The Drowsy Chaperone, and Helene Yorke of Grease.
