The show will begin performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre on November 24, with an official opening on December 13.
First seen on Broadway in 1973, the show -- which is based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night -- concerns a glamorous actress, Desiree Armfeldt, who reconnects with her old flame, Frederik Egerman, who is now married to a much younger woman. Nunn directed the show in London last year.
The cast will also include Alexander Hanson as Fredrik Egerman, Aaron Lazar as Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, Erin Davie as Countess Charlotte Malcolm, Leigh Ann Larkin as Petra, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka as Henrik Egerman, Ramona Mallory as Anne Egerman, Bradley Dean as Frid, Katherine Leigh Doherty and Keaton Whitaker alternating as Fredrika, Marissa McGowan, Betsy Morgan, Karen Murphy, Jayne Paterson, and Kevin David Thomas.
The creative team includes Lynne Page (choreography), Caroline Humphris (musical supervision), David Farley (sets and costumes), Hartley T A Kemp (lighting), Dan Moses Shreier and Gareth Owen (sound), Jason Carr (orchestrations), and Tom Murray (musical direction).
Nunn's many directorial credits include Cats, Les Miserables, Rock n' Roll, Oklahoma, The Woman in White, Arcadia, Porgy and Bess, and The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.
