Via Broadway World
As HAIR readies for its Broadway makeover and London premiere, rumors are beginning to swirl as to which current cast members will be settling in across the pond and which new faces will be gracing the Broadway production. The newest reports out suggest that American Idol alumni Ace Young (season 5’s seventh runner up) and Diana DeGarmo (season 3 runner up, Hairspray, The Toxic Avenger) are among the new picks for the Broadway replacement cast. No official announcement has been made by the production, although it is expected that casting announcements for London and New York are imminent, as the new Broadway performers go into rehearsal in the coming weeks.
I’m assuming this current revival doesn’t have the cast getting naked like in the old days. Heh. (Just found out it does! But it’s up to each cast member to decide if they want to bare all or not. I’m thinking negatory on Ace or Diana going full frontal…)
The new “tribe” is set to debut on March 9th at the Al Hirschfield Theater in New York City.
UPDATE: Diana has tweeted about waiting for a deal to close on a Broadway play… Rumor is that Diana will play Sheila and Ace will play Berger…
