'Good Night, Oscar' completes main Broadway cast joining Sean Hayes
The new play will go up at the Belasco Theatre.
UPDATE: Thomas Michael Hammond and Stephanie Janssen have joined the Good Night, Oscar Broadway cast as understudies.
Good day, Broadway! The main cast for the new play Good Night, Oscar is complete, with five newly announced members joining. Doug Wright's show about TV personality Oscar Levant runs from April 7 to August 27, with opening night on April 24.
New cast members include Marchánt Davis as Alvin Finney and Alex Wyse as Max Weinbaum, along with Sam Bell-Gurwitz, Postell Pringle, and Max Roll as understudies. They join the previously announced Emily Bergl as June Levant, Peter Grosz as Bob Sarnoff, Ben Rappaport as Jack Paar, and John Zdrojeski as George Gershwin.
As previously announced, Will & Grace star Sean Hayes will play Oscar Levant, a pianist, actor, and comedian who turns network TV upside down with his guest spot on the Jack Paar show. In 90 minutes, he leaves audiences laughing heartily and puts TV censors in a frenzy.
Good Night, Oscar premiered earlier this year at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and will play the Belasco Theatre on Broadway.
