Rosenberg takes lead in ‘Sheba’

Actor to replace Davison in show

Screen Actors Guild prexy Alan Rosenberg will replace Bruce Davison in Center Theater Group’s “Come Back, Little Sheba.”

Rosenberg will star opposite the previously announced S. Epatha Merkerson in the William Inge play about a fragile 25-year marriage that receives a jolt when a young woman boards in their home (Daily Variety, April 2).

Davison had an unexpected scheduling conflict.

Rosenberg was elected to SAG’s top post in 2005. He performed on Broadway in “Lost in Yonkers” and has recently appeared on the Eye net’s “CSI.” Merkerson, who stars on NBC’s “Law & Order,” earned a Tony nom for her role in “The Piano Lesson.”

Play, to be directed by Michael Pressman, bows June 24 at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City and runs through July 15. “Sheba” reps the final production in the theater’s 2006-07 season.
