BWW EXCLUSIVE: A CHORUS LINE's 'Casey' Speaks! Hunter Agnew Talks Gender-Bended Canadian Production

(8/3 at 12:01 AM) - One of the hottest stories of the summer has been Canadian regional theater Blue Canoe Theatrical Productions' game-changing and gender-bended mounting of classic Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A CHORUS LINE featuring a male actor in the leading role of Cassie, now referred to as Casey. Today, Kingston actor Hunter Agnew speaks exclusively to BroadwayWorld about how he became involved in the production, the revolutionary take on the show envisioned by the creative team for this production as well as his own thoughts on portraying a character traditionally played by an actress - of course, Broadway legend Donna McKechnie famously originally essayed the part and won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress In A Musical for her efforts. Go inside the production and learn all about a buzz-worthy new take on a familiar classic below and be sure to check out BroadwayWorld's previous coverage of the production that closed late last month, available here.
