Now we know Ceveris can't be in it. He's in the Vibrator play or something.

I believe there are still rumours about Ceveris doing it, but personally I don't want him anywhere near the show. I don't think he's right for anything in it.

What about Hugh Panaro as Fredrik? He's 45, looks like he could have shared a past with Catherine Zeta-Jones being cast at the age she is and has a bit of a Sondheim background, having been in both Company and Sunday in the Park with George. I also wouldn't mind seeing Marc Kudisch as Carl-Magnus.

He's in the vibrator play so he can't do 2 at once. ON BROADWAY

Post Casting Rumours
Gossipmonger Michael Riedel asked readers to e-mail him their suggestions for a leading man to play Frederik Egerman. These are what people came up with:

Michael Riedel at The New York Post wrote:
The clear favorite is Raul Esparza, who starred in "Company" on Broadway a couple of years ago. A close second (and a good suggestion) is Paulo Szot, all suave and silky in the revival of "South Pacific" at Lincoln Center. Also popular were Jeremy Irons, Hugh Jackman, Colin Firth and Michael Cerveris.

There were some wacky ones as well:

* Matthew Broderick -- "He will remember his lines!"
* John Goodman -- "He'll bring in all those 'Roseanne' rerun addicts -- and there are millions of us."
* George Hamilton -- "I don't care how old he is, he's the one."
* Henry Winkler (no explanation given, but can you imagine the chemistry between the Fonz and Catherine Zeta-Jones?)

I'm not convinced about Esparza in the role, and I think that perhaps Szot is too dashing and charming.

Jeremy Irons seems about the best of me of the names mentioned above, although I still like my idea of Hugh Panaro, even though he might he a little too much on the good-looking side. Perhaps he could let himself go for the role. :wink:

Maybe John Dossett would work too.

Raul Ezparza is too young...but Jeremy Irons seems like a good choice...and I actually like the idea of Paulo Szot doing the role, although his voice might be a bit too operatic.

Post Complete Cast
So the complete cast of principle players has been announced:

Andrew Gans at Playbill wrote:
(Catherine) Zeta-Jones, who will be making her Broadway debut, will play the role of Desirée Armfeldt with Broadway favorite Lansbury as Madame Armfeldt.

Olivier Award nominee Alexander Hanson, who played the role of Fredrik Egerman in the Nunn-directed production of Night Music at London's Menier Chocolate Factory and in the West End, will re-create his work for New York audiences. The cast will also feature Aaron Lazar... as Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, Erin Davie... as Countess Charlotte Malcolm, Leigh Ann Larkin... as Petra, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka as Henrik Egerman and Ramona Mallory [who is the daughter on the original Anne, Victoria Mallory!] as Anne Egerman with Bradley Dean, Marissa McGowan, Betsy Morgan, Karen Murphy, Jayne Paterson and Kevin David Thomas. Additional casting, including the role of Fredrika Armfeldt, will be announced at a later date.

How's this for a bittersweet quote from Lansbury?

Angela Lansbury wrote:
The circle is complete. I'm back singing the beautiful music of Stephen Sondheim, and working with a lovely young actress, Catherine Zeta-Jones!

Now... how do we get someone to film this for DVD?
