Stephanie J. Block to Join Anything Goes

Andrew Gans' article, copied below, appeared today on under the title "Stephanie J. Block Will Temporarily Fill in for Sutton Foster in Broadway's Anything Goes".

Roundabout Theatre Company announced Oct. 19 that Stephanie J. Block will join the Tony Award-winning revival of Cole Porter's Anything Goes for a limited engagement next month when she steps into the role of Reno Sweeney while Sutton Foster, who won a Tony Award for her performance, films a television pilot.

Specific performance dates for Block's two-to-three week engagement will be announced shortly. Block will step into the role opposite Joel Grey as Moonface Martin.

The production features direction and choreography by Tony winner Kathleen Marshall.

Stephanie J. Block was most recently seen on Broadway in 9 To 5: The Musical, earning a Drama Desk nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. She is best known for her portrayal as Elphaba in the Broadway company of Wicked and for creating the roles of Grace O'Malley in The Pirate Queen and Liza Minnelli in The Boy From Oz (opposite Hugh Jackman).

Anything Goes plays the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 West 43rd Street). A new block of tickets recently went on sale through April 29, 2012.
