Spring Season Casting Under Way

During the spring season, it is not uncommon for long running shows to start recasting their shows to keep them fresh and to take advantage of celebrity casting to attract new audiences to the show. This season has a number of names coming to Broadway as replacements, though not all in new shows.

Justin Kirk will be joining the cast of a new play, Other Desert Cities. He will be taking over for Jason Sadoski, for the extension of the play. The play was only expecting to play a limited run, but when the show became a box office hit, it extended its run and Kirk will be taking over the role during the extension. Kirk, who is known for his roles on TV's Weeds and the movie adaptation of Angels in America, will be entering the show on January 10th.

Also coming to Broadway is Michale Urie, who will be joining the cast of the hit revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Urie will be replacing Christopher J. Hanke in the role of Bud Frump, the boss' nephew. He will be joining the show on January 24th, along with other replacements Nick Jonas and Beau Bridges.
