Photo Coverage: 'The Ritz' Opening Night Arrivals

An impressive collection of Broadway and screen celebrities arrived for the officially opening of The Ritz on Thursday, October 11 on Broadway at Studio 54 (254 West 54th St) where it will play a limited engagement through December 2, 2007. 

"When garbageman Gaetano Proclo's brother-in-law orders him killed by the mob, he hides in the most unsuspecting place -- a gay bathhouse! Hilarity and chaos ensue, as Gaetano and his outrageous new friends hatch a plan to save his life," explain press notes.

The Ritz, written by Terrence McNally, is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.  The cast stars Rosie Perez, Kevin Chamberlin, Brooks Ashmanskas plus performances by Ashlie Atkinson and Seth Rudetsky.
