Sandy Duncan to Star in Barrington Stage's Mame
The show will also feature Diane J. Findlay as Vera Charles, with additional casting to be announced at a later date. Barrington had announced earlier this year that Donna McKechnie would star in the title role, but the Tony Award-winning actress bowed out earlier this summer because the engagement would conflict with rehearsals for the upcoming London revival of Over Here!
Duncan is a three-time Tony Award nominee for Canterbury Tales, The Boy Friend, and Peter Pan. She has also starred on Broadway in Love Is a Time of Day, My One and Only, and Chicago. Earlier this year, she starred in the Old Globe's production of A Body of Water. Her many film and television credits include Star Spangled Girl, The Hogan Family, The Swan Princess, and Roots, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.
