Tony winner Gavin Creel will reunite with his Thoroughly Modern Millie costar, Tony winner Sutton Foster, for Roundabout Theatre Company's upcoming benefit performance of George and Ira Gershwin's My One and Only. The concert will take place November 12 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
With a book by Peter Stone and Timothy S. Mayer, My One and Only is the tale of Jazz Age aviator Captain Billy Buck Chandler and Edythe Herbert, an ex-English Channel swimmer and the star of Prince Nicolai's International Aquacade.
As previously announced, Foster will play Edythe, with Creel as Billy Buck Chandler. Rob Ashford, who won a Tony for his work on Millie, will direct and choreograph.
Proceeds from the performance will benefit Roundabout's Musical Theatre Fund, which is dedicated to preserving the art form by bringing familiar and lesser-known works to a new generation of theatergoers.
