Victoria Clark to star in ‘Juno’ musical

Encores! production set for March 2008

Tony winner Victoria Clark will play the title character in the semi-staged Encores! production of “Juno,” Marc Blitzstein and Joseph Stein’s rarely seen 1959 musical about a struggling Irish family in 1920s Dublin.

Clark, who won the 2006 Tony for actress in a musical for “The Light in the Piazza,” will play the self-sacrificing matriarch who fights to hold her family together through war and hardship in the show, based on Sean O’Casey’s 1924 play “Juno and the Paycock.” Garry Hynes, who directed last season’s Broadway revival of “Translations,” will stage the production, running March 27-30.

Blitzstein and Stein’s musical originally ran only 16 performances on Broadway in a production starring Shirley Booth and Melvyn Douglas.

Other Encores! shows scheduled in the spring season include “Applause,” directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall and starring Christine Ebersole (Feb. 7-10), and “No, No, Nanette,” with Walter Bobbie directing a cast that includes Sandy Duncan, Rosie O’Donnell, Beth Leavel and Fred Willard.
