Will Chase and Stephanie J. Block to Star in ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ at Second Stage Theatre

Sstephanie-j-block-will-chase-little-miss-sunshineecond Stage Theatre just announced that 2013 Tony Award nominees Stephanie J. Block and Will Chase will co-star in this fall’s production of the new musical comedy, Little Miss Sunshine. 

With book and direction by James Lapine and music and lyrics by William Finn, the musical will kick off Second Stage’s 35th anniversary season on October 15th, with opening night set for mid-November. 

Block and Chase are both Tony nominees for this season’s revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. 

I saw the original production at the La Jolla Playhouse and I’m sorry to say that I hated it. I know the show has been re-tooled and with Chase and Block in it, I’m sure it’s going to be great.

In the show, Chase will play Richard Hoover, an aspiring motivational speaker, and Block will play his wife Sheryl, the multi-tasking backbone of the Hoover clan, who together take their family on the 800-mile journey to the “Little Miss Sunshine” pageant.    

Additional casting will be announced at a later date.  

For subscription or ticket information, please call the Second Stage Box Office at 212-246-4422 or visit the company’s website, www.2ST.com. 

All performances are staged at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre, 305 West 43rd Street (just west of Eighth Avenue).
