Kevin Anderson, currently playing the role of Taylor Collins in Brooklyn, will be taking a temporary leave from the show starting on March 12th. Anderson has been cast in the star-packed film remake of Charlotte's Web, and will be out of Brooklyn for an indefinite period of time to continue shooting of the film.
Lee Morgan, Anderson's understudy who originated the role at the Denver Civic Theatre, will go on during his absence.
Anderson already took some time off from his Brooklyn role to shoot Charlotte's Web; he was gone from February 8th to February 18th.
Anderson's other theatrical credits include the role of Biff in the 1999 Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman and Val Xavier in the 1989 Broadway revival of Tennesse Williams' Orpheus Descending.
Brooklyn tells the whimsical urban fairy tale of a girl who comes from Paris to her namesake city in search of her father and of fame as a pop singer. The show stars Eden Espinoza in the title role and in addition to Anderson, it features Ramona Keller, Cleavant Derricks and Karen Olivo. Brooklyn features direction and choreography by Jeff Calhoun. It began previews at the Plymouth Theatre on September 23rd 2004, and opened on October 21st.
