Start spreading the news, indeed. Additional cast members have been announced for New York, New York

The new musical will feature Clyde Alves as Tommy Caggiano, John Clay III as Jesse Webb, Janet Dacal as Sofia Diaz, Ben Davis as Gordon Kendrick, Oliver Prose as Alex Mann, Angel Sigala as Mateo Diaz, and Tony Award nominee Emily Skinner as Madame Veltri. 

The ensemble will include Wendi Bergamini, Allison Blackwell, Giovanni Bonaventura, Jim Borstelmann, Lauren Carr, Mike Cefalo, Bryan J. Cortés, Kristine Covillo, Gabriella Enriquez, Haley Fish, Ashley Blair Fitzgerald, Richard Gatta, Stephen Hanna, Naomi Kakuk, Akina Kitazawa, Ian Liberto, Kevin Ligon, Leo Moctezuma, Aaron Nicholas Patterson, Dayna Marie Quincy, Julian Ramos, Drew Redington, Benjamin Rivera, Vanessa Sears, Davis Wayne, Jeff Williams, and Darius Wright.

The additional cast members join the previously announced Anna Uzele as Francine Evans and Colton Ryan as Jimmy Doyle. Uzele originated the role of Catherine Parr (“I Don’t Need Your Love”) in SIX: The Musical. Before that, she appeared in Once On This Island. Ryan was last seen on Broadway in Girl From the North Country and The Girl From Plainville on Hulu. He made his Broadway debut in Dear Evan Hansen.

A trailer for the musical has been released and can be viewed here. The musical will begin previews March 24, 2023, at the St. James Theatre with an opening night set for April 26.

New York, New York will feature music supervision and arrangements by Sam Davis, orchestrations by Davis and Daryl Waters, vocal arrangements by David Loud, and music direction by Alvin Hough Jr., with Foresight Theatrical as general manager and casting by Jim Carnahan and Jason Thinger. Sonia Friedman and Tom Kirdahy are lead producers.

The show has been in development for some time now with an NYC workshop staged in 2022. Kander and Ebb’s work was last seen on Broadway with The Visit in 2015. They’re perhaps best known for their scores to Cabaret and Chicago. Ebb passed away in 2004, but Kander has remained a top musical contributor, working with Stroman on several projects already. The musical will also feature additional lyrics from Lin-Manuel Miranda. This is the first time Miranda has worked with Stroman, but Kander helped the composer-lyricist with a new song for a Hamilton collaboration in 2018.
