Matthew Scott to Replace Tony Nominee Brandon Uranowitz in Broadway's An American in Paris
The Broadway veteran takes over for the show's original Adam Hochberg.
The Broadway company of An American in Paris welcomes Matthew Scott to the Palace Theatre tonight, where he begins performances as Adam Hochberg. He replaces original cast member Brandon Uranowitz who played his final performance on Sunday, August 7 and who will appear in Falsettos on Broadway this Fall.
Scott has appeared on Broadway in Sondheim On Sondheim, Jersey Boys, and A Catered Affair. Across the U.S., he has performed in productions at La Jolla Playhouse, Old Globe, Kennedy Center, Signature Theatre, Goodspeed Opera House, Paper Mill Playhouse, Alliance Theatre, Philadelphia Theatre Co., O'Neill Theatre Center, York Theatre, Muny, and Pittsburgh CLO.
Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, An American in Paris is inspired by the Academy Award-winning film. The four-time Tony-winning musical features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas.
Scott joins a cast that features Dimitri Kleioris as Jerry Mulligan, Leanne Cope as Lise Dassin, Veanne Cox as Madame Baurel, Jill Paice as Milo Davenport, and Max von Essen as Henri Baurel. The production runs on Broadway through October 9 and launches its national tour shortly after.
