Rebecca to open on Broadway without Sierra Boggess and Tam Mutu

The previously cancelled Broadway premiere of the musical Rebecca based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier which was to star Sierra Boggess and Tam Mutu will now open on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre on 18th November, with previews from 30th October. The musical was originally scheduled to open at the Broadhurst earlier this year on 22nd April but was cancelled due to funding problems.

The cast will now feature the previously announced Karen Mason (Sunset Boulevard, Mamma Mia!) as Mrs Danvers, Howard McGillin (The Phantom of the Opera) as Frank Crawley, James Barbour (Beauty and the Beast, A Tale of Two Cities) as Jack Favell, Donna English (Lend Me A Tenor) as Beatrice de Winter, Nick Wyman (Les Miserables) as Giles and Henry Stram as Ben.

Casting for the leading roles of “I” and 'Maxim de Winter' will be announced in the coming weeks. The roles were initially to have been played by Sierra Boggess and Tam Matu. They are no longer available as Boggess is star in the new Hal Prince biopic The Prince of Broadway and Mutu is joining Les Miserables playing Javert at the Queen’s Theatre in June.
