The Road to Broadway

Some musicals have fairly smooth roads to Broadway, with not a lot of tinkering, not a lot of bickering. Women appears to be one of these. An Early Summer 2009 workshop with Jessica Biel, Joanna Gleason, Salma Hayek, Matthew Morrison and Paulo Szot was so encouraging there was talk, first reported by Michael Riedel, that the show might be shoe-horned in at the end of Spring 2010 for Tony eligibility. That didn't happen, but in February 2010 Lincoln Center Theater announced a March 2010 workshop aiming for October 2010 previews and a November opening. This time around workshoppers were to include Danny Burstein, Tom Hewitt, Oscar Isaac, Patti Lupone and Sherie Rene Scott along with Ms Biel. Casting mid-May 2010 in NYC

In the same article referred to above Mr Riedel mentioned what might be the one little bump in the road for Women. He reported that an audition for the central role of Pepa Marcos had been offered to Catherine Zeta-Jones, "which, I'm told, she regarded as an insult." So, off Ms Zeta-Jones went to A Little Night Music with Angela Lansbury. Life's not too bad when you have options, huh?
