Casting Updates for The Best Man
Casting for the upcoming Broadway revival of Gore Vidal's The Best Man is coming together. In addition to previously announced star James Earl Jones, the production will also star Tony winners John Larroquette and Angela Lansbury, Emmy winner Candice Bergen, and Oscar nominee Michael McKean. The production is expected to begin previews on March 6th, with opening expected for April 1st and will be directed by Michael Wilson. The production is rather timely, in a way, given Broadway.com's plot description: "Vidal’s 1960 political drama centers on power, ambition, political secrets and ruthless behavior surrounding a race for the presidency."
