Vivino Replaces Parker in Fame Becomes Me, October 3

Donna Vivino will join the cast of the smash hit Broadway musical Martin Short: FAME BECOMES ME beginning Tuesday, October 3. Ms. Vivino replaces Nicole Parker who will return to her role on Fox's "Mad TV."

Ms. Vivino joins the cast after a long stint in the Broadway company of Hairspray. She has previously appeared on Broadway in Saturday Night Fever and was the original Young Cosette in Les Miserables. Her film and television credits include Everyday People (HBO), Married to It, "Hometown" and "All My Children."

Martin Short: FAME BECOMES ME is the new comedy musical co-written by Martin Short and Daniel Goldfarb (Modern Orthodox) with additional material by Alan Zweibel (700 Sundays) and featuring music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray). FAME BECOMES ME features Short in a comic tour de force guiding us through an improbable version of his life story. Backed by a brilliant cast of top Broadway performers (who constantly steal focus from Mr. Short when he's not looking), Short's transparent play for love and attention asks the burning question, does an autobiography really have to be true?

The cast also features Brooks Ashmanskas, Mary Birdsong, Capathia Jenkins and Marc Shaiman.

Directed by Wittman, Martin Short: FAME BECOMES ME plays at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street). The performance schedule is Tuesday at 7 p.m., Wednesday – Saturday at 8 p.m., Wednesday & Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased via Telecharge.com / (212) 239-6200 or at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre Box Office. For additional information, visit www.martinshortthemusical.com.
