Springtime on Broadway

from Gordon Cox's article today in Variety :

Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush (in his Broadway debut, playing a king who's in denial about his own impending death) will star in Eugene Ionesco's 1962 absurdist play, *Exit the King,* opening in March.

Other Broadway legit plays this spring include "Blithe Spirit," starring Angela Lansbury and Rupert Everett; "Mary Stuart," with Janet McTeer; "The Philanthropist," with Matthew Broderick; "Accent on Youth," with David Hyde Pierce; and "Waiting for Godot," with Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin.

Bloomberg on Jan. 29 has more: Impressionism, 33 Variations and God of Carnage....
