Actress joins MTC revival of 'Master Class'

Fresh from her Olivier-nominated turn as Christine Daae in “The Phantom of the Opera” sequel “Love Never Dies,” Sierra Boggess has been cast opposite Tyne Daly in Manhattan Theater Club’s upcoming revival of Terrence McNally’s “Master Class.”

Boggess, who made her Main Stem debut as the title character of “The Little Mermaid,” will play Sharon, a student of Maria Callas (Daly) in the titular class. Role was originated by Audra McDonald, who won a Tony for her efforts.

New York run presented by Manhattan Theater Club is a remount of a production that originated at the Kennedy Center last year. Daly toplined that incarnation as well, although Boggess was not involved.

Previews for “Master Class” begin May 24 ahead of a June 21 opening at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater.
