Additional principal casting has been announced for the forthcoming Broadway musical Rebecca. The show, to be co-directed by Michael Blakemore and Francesco Zambello, will begin previews at the Broadhurst Theatre on March 27, in anticipation of an April 22 opening.

The show will feature Sierra Boggess in the lead role of "I" alongside Tam Mutu as Maxim de Winter, Karen Mason as Mrs. Danvers, Howard McGillin as Frank Crawley, James Barbour as Jack Favell, Donna English as Beatrice de Winter, Henry Stram as Ben, and Nick Wyman as Giles. John Dossett, who had previously been announced to play Frank has withdrawn from the production.

The musical is based on the classic novel by Daphne du Maurier novel and features an original book by Michael Kunze, music by Sylvester Levay, English book adaptation by Christopher Hampton, and English lyrics by Hampton and Kunze.

The show tells the story of Maxim de Winter, his new wife ("I"), and Mrs. Danvers, the controlling and manipulative housekeeper of Maxim's West Country estate of Manderley -- where the memory of his first wife, the glamorous and mysterious Rebecca, still casts a shadow.

Graciela Daniele will create the musical staging for the show. The production will feature scenic design by Peter J. Davidson, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting by Mark McCullough, sound by Peter Fitzgerald, special effects by Gregory Meeh and projections by Sven Ortel. Musical direction and supervision is by Kevin Stites.
