From Chicago to Broadway

Cheyenne, Daniel and Hugh, and Jude – move aside, there’s a lady coming.

Catherine Zeta-Jones reportedly will join the legendary Angela Lansbury in an upcoming revival of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music.

Lansbury had agreed to play Madame Armfeldt, but she didn’t want to shoulder the production all on her own – although she could have – so she…suggested that producers line up another star to play her daughter Desiree.

That was Zeta-Jones’ cue right there.

The Chicago Oscar winner, though, was supposed to star in a Great White Way production of Women on the Verge, based on the Pedro Almodóvar film, but balked at having to audition.

A Little Night Music is set to open in December.
