Brian Stokes Mitchell & Audra McDonald will reunite for a special benefit concert of the 1998 Tony-winning musical, Ragtime, for the Actors Fund on April 27th. The event will also be dedicated to fellow original cast member, the late Marin Mazzie. https://www.broadway.com/buzz/190845/audra-mcdonald-brian-stokes-mitchell-to-reunite-for-ragtime-benefit-concert-dedicated-to-marin-mazzie/?fbclid=IwAR3Vxys5qrmE96U47uT6uoteeVp5B4LaORjwXN67tjd4HtR6Y9lTA1fphvU
Assuming the role of Mother for Marin Mazzie will be Kelli O’Hara, which in my opinion is perfect casting all around. It’s a role I’ve always wanted to see her tackle.
Not only that, but other original Broadway cast members that have been confirmed to return are Mark Jacoby as Father, Steven Sutcliffe as Mother’s Younger Brother, Jim Corti as Harry Houdini, Larry Daggett as Henry Ford, Judy Kaye as Emma Goldman, Lynnette Perry as Evelyn Nesbit, and many more.March 11, 2020 at 4:52 pm #1203378662
