The cast is now set for Musicals Tonight!'s production of the classic musical comedy Bells Are Ringing, which will run October 17–29 at the Lion Theatre at Theatre Row.
Casey Colgan will direct and choreograph with musical direction and vocal arrangements by Christopher Stephens.
The cast will be led by Oakley Boycott as Ella Peterson, Amie Bermowitz as Sue, Brent Heuser as Jeffrey Moss, Don Rey as Larry Hastings, Will Porter as Dr. Kitchell, Roger Reed as Blake Barton, Cooper Grodin as J. Sandor Prantz, Bill Bateman as Inspector Barnes, Stephen Raymond as Francis, Samantha Gershman as Gwynne, and Pedro Rangel as Carl.
The ensemble includes Kacie Burns, Ryan Fitzgerald, Jonathan Hoover, Tanner Rose, Alexandria Van Paris, Andrea Weinzierl, Caitlin Wilayto, and Chris Woods.
Bells Are Ringing boasts a score by Tony-winning composer Jule Styne, with a book and lyrics by the Tony Award-winning team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green. In the show, the lonely Ella works in the basement of an answering service, where she spends her hours listening in on the calls of her clients. As she assumes different identities for each of her callers, she also becomes entangled in their lives.
Judy Holliday starred in the original Broadway production and the subsequent film; a Broadway revival starred Tony winner Faith Prince. The classic score features such songs as "Just in Time," "The Party's Over," "Long Before I Knew You," "I'm Going Back," " It's a Perfect Relationship," "I Met a Girl," and "Is It a Crime?"
The Lion Theatre at Theatre Row Studio is located at 410 West 42nd Street. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased at the box office, by visiting Telecharge, or by calling (212) 239-6200.
