The Roundabout revival of Pal Joey, the classic Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical comedy from 1940, has released a few production photographs, taken by Joan Marcus.
The cast is led by Stockard Channing as Vera Simpson, Matthew Risch as Joey Evans and Martha Plimpton as Gladys Bumps, with Robert Clohessy, Jenny Fellner, Daniel Marcus, Steven Skybell, Timothy J. Alex, Brian Barry, Kurt Froman, Bahiyah Sayyed Gaines, Lisa Gajda, Anthony Holds, Nadine Isenegger, Mark Morettini, Kathryn Mowat Murphy, Abbey O’Brien, Hayley Podschun, Krista Saab and Eric Sciotto. Pal Joey is directed by Joe Mantello with choreography by Graciela Daniele.
The show looks fabulous – word on the street is that it’s unfortunately rather not so in performance – and Matthew Risch as Joey just looks HOT! Talk about bewitching… I can quite clearly see why Vera would be bothered and bewildered! (Martha Plimpton and Stockard Channing look great too.)
