Transport Group Theatre Company has announced casting for its upcoming concert presentation of The Music Man, set to take place on Monday, August 11, at the Irene Diamond Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Directed by Transport Group Artistic Director Jack Cummings III, the cast will feature Tony nominees and former Cinderella costars Laura Osnes and Santino Fontana. The company will also include Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies), Alexandra Silber (Arlington), Mary Testa (Queen of the Mist), Jill Paice (Matilda), Heather MacRae (I Remember Mama), Jeffry Denman (Passion), Stanley Bahorek (Little Me at Encores!), David Greenspan (A Midsummer Night's Dream), and D.C.
