Thesps take bite out of ‘Apple’

D'Arcy James, Kudisch to co-star in revival

Brian d’Arcy James (“Sweet Smell of Success”) and Marc Kudisch (“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”) will co-star with Kristin Chenoweth in the Roundabout revival of “The Apple Tree.”

D’Arcy James will play the three paramours of the three characters portrayed by Chenoweth in the musical, which consists of three short tales inspired by stories by Mark Twain, Frank R. Stockton and Jules Pfeiffer.

Kudisch will play the snake in “The Diary of Adam and Eve,” based on a story by Twain.

The Encores! series of staged readings presented a 2005 production of “Apple Tree” that, like the Roundabout incarnation, starred Chenoweth and was helmed by Gary Griffin and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler. Latest production begins previews at Studio 54 on Nov. 28 and opens Dec. 14.
