Angel Returns to Broadwy
Broadway's original Angel Dumott Schunard, Wilson Jermaine Heradia, will be returning to Broadway this year. Heredia will be joining the cast of La Cage Aux Folles as Jacob, taking over the role from Robin de Jesus who received a Tony nomination for his performance in the role in the current revival opposite Kelsey Grammer's George and Tony-winner Douglas Hodge's Albin/Zaza. Heredia, who originated the role of Angel in the Broadway production of RENT (in a Tony-winning performance), will begin performances on February 15th -- the same day that Harvey Fierstein and Jeffrey Tambour will take over the roles of Albin/Zaza and Georges respectively.
