“What’s Playing at the Roxy!?! I’ll tell you what’s playing at the Roxy!”

In the most bizarrely casted revival of the year, Lauren Graham (TV’s Gilmore Girls) has been cast as Miss Adelaide in the winter 2009 revival of Frank Loesser’s Guys and Dolls.  Oliver Platt will also be starring in the revival as the shyster Nathan Detroit.  Guys and Dolls was last seen on Broadway in 1992 in a revival that starred Peter Gallagher, Nathan Lane, and Faith Prince as Miss Adelaide.  Prince would end up winning a Tony Award for her portrayal of Miss Adelaide.

I am optimistic but this casting leaves me befuddled.  Especially since London just had a Donmar Warehouse revival a few years ago with Ewan McGregor as Sky Masterson, Jenna Russell (recently of Roundabout’s Sunday in the Park with George) as Sarah Brown, and Jane Krakowski as Miss Adelaide.  Why didn’t that transfer!?!

Here’s a little video, in case one is interested in the London production:

Daddycatcher enjoys the Ewan McGregor casting.  He would like to throw a name into the ring for the casting agents of the new Broadway revival: JAMES MARSDEN (Husband #5) as Sky Masterson!

Just sayin’!
