Cast set for ‘First Wives Club’

Lenox, Walsh, Ziemba to star

Adriane Lenox (“Doubt”), Barbara Walsh (“Company”) and Karen Ziemba (“Contact”) will topline the Broadway-bound tuner version of “The First Wives Club,” set to begin its out-of-town tryout at San Diego’s Old Globe in July.

Lenox appeared in a reading of the musical earlier this year. John Dossett, Brad Oscar, Sam Harris and Sara Chase also are among the vets of that reading to join the cast.

Francesca Zambello (“The Little Mermaid”) directs “First Wives,” with book by Rupert Holmes (“Curtains”) and music by pop hitmakers Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland. Musical is based on the 1996 pic of the same name, and the 1992 novel on which it is based.

Design team includes Peter J. Davison (sets), Paul Tazewell (costumes), Mark McCullough (lights) and Jon Weston (sound). Lisa Stevens choreographs.

“First Wives” begins San Diego previews July 15 ahead of a July 31 opening. Paul Lambert and Jonas Neilson will produce the Broadway run, with dates and theater to be determined.
