Andrea Martin, who won 2013 Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her high-flying performance as Berthe in the current Broadway revival of Pippin, will depart that production on Sunday, September 22, to star in the new Global TV series Working the Engels, which will film in Toronto.
A replacement for Berthe, the character who gets to sing the audience-rousing anthem "No Time at All," will be announced in the coming weeks. During Martin's recent vacation, four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony) took on the part.
Currently running at the Music Box Theatre, the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin melds Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson's classic coming-of-age musical with the death-defying tricks of a contemporary circus. Directed by Diane Paulus, choreographed by Chet Walker in the style of Bob Fosse, and featuring circus creations by Gypsy Snider of Les 7 doigts de la main, the production stars 2013 Tony winner Patina Miller, Matthew James Thomas, Terrence Mann, Charlotte d'Amboise, Rachel Bay Jones, and Erik Altemus.
