Jason Robert Brown's new musical Honeymoon in Vegas, which will open on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre on 15 January 2015, following previews from 18 November 2014, has now announced full casting.

The cast of Honeymoon in Vegas includes Tony Danza (Tommy Korman), Rob McClure (Jack Singer), Brynn O'Malley (Betsey Nolan), David Josefsberg (David), Nancy Opel (Bea Singer) and Matthew Saldivar (Johnny Sandwich), with Matt Allen, Tracee Beazer, Grady McLeod Bowman, Barry Busby, Leslie Donna Flesner, Gaelen Gilliland, Albert Guerzon, Raymond J.

Based on the 1992 Castle Rock Entertainment Motion Picture of the same name, Honeymoon in Vegas features a book by Andrew Bergman and music and lyrics by three-time Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, and is directed by Gary Griffin and choreographed by Denis Jones.

The musical tells the story of Jack Singer (Rob McClure), a regular guy with an extraordinary fear of marriage, who finally gets up the nerve to ask his girlfriend Betsy (Brynn O'Malley) to marry him. But when they head to Las Vegas to get hitched, smooth talking gambler Tommy Korman (Tony Danza), looking for a second chance at love, falls head over heels for Betsy. What happens next is anybody's bet!

The production enjoyed a successful try-out at New Jersey's Papermill Playhouse, which gained excellent reviews, with the New York Times calling it "a delightful new musical" and "a swinging hymn to laid-back outrageousness".

The creative team behind Honeymoon in Vegas features scenic design by Anna Louizos, costumes by Emmy Award winner Brian C. Hemesath, lighting by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley, sound design by Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer & Drew Levy, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe, and props by Kathy Fabian/Propstar. Music direction is by Tom Murray, with orchestrations by Tony and Grammy Award winner Don Sebesky, Larry Blank, Jason Robert Brown, and Charlie Rosen.

The musical is produced on Broadway by Dena Hammerstein, Roy Gabay, Rich Entertainment Group, Dan Farah, Metro Card, King's Leaves, Dan Frishwasser, Leslie Greif/Thom Beers, Suzi Dietz & Lenny Beer, Howard Hoffman/Anna Czekaj, Important Musicals, Sharon Karmazin, L.G.
