Casting Couch: Two Iconic Roles Get Filled

The roles of Cyrano de Bergerac and Daddy Warbucks have been cast. Who gets to put on the nose and shave their head? Tony Winner Douglas Hodge will play the title role of Cyrano in Roundabout's revival. This will be Hodge's second foray in stage transformation after winning a Tony for his drag turn in La Cage aux Folles. Australian stage star Anthony Warlow will play billionaire Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks in Annie on Broadway. Guess this show will officially be all about Katie Finneran.
