Has Encores! announced any casting for their upcoming season yet? Or have there been any whispers?

Part of me is surprised they haven't announced ANY casting yet, but it IS Encores and they are notorious for late announcements re: casting.

I'm curious about who will be playing Fiorello. My choice would either be Christopher Fitzgerald or Rob McClure, and am not even sure who else could be considered.

Has anyone heard anything about the cast for Fiorello?
It seems like they should have announced something by now but I don't see any information on their website.

Well Erin Dilly has already been announced for FIORELLO and I found out yesterday that Kate Baldwin is also doing the show. I'm sorry that I really don't know this show at all so I couldn't tell you what part she's doing, but I'm excited to see her again in anything!

Just read that Emily Skinner is in Fiorello so I'm looking to go. Lots of availability - anyone else going?

Fiorello cast was just announced. Not especially exciting (Rutigliano, in particular, has made a career out of being merely competent), although Skinner should do a good job belting out "Gentleman Jim":
As the show begins, Republican District Leader Ben Marino (Shuler Hensley) hasnt had a winning candidate in years until Fiorello LaGuardia steps in. LaGuardia (Danny Rutigliano) falls in love with Thea (Kate Baldwin), a feisty union organizer. Theas best friend Dora (Jenn Gambatese) falls in love with a none-too-smart cop (Jeremy Bobb). And LaGuardias office manager, Marie (Erin Dilly) has been in love with her boss for years. Mitzi (Emily Skinner) performs for Tammany Hall cronies. Everything changes when LaGuardia runs for congress and wins the election.

This could be an exciting cast, I like everyone in it, but the women in particular seem to be in the wrong roles. I'd think Dilly should be Thea, Baldwin Marie, Skinner Dora and Gambatese Mitzi.

I am also surprised that Erin Dilly isn't Thea and Kate Baldwin isn't Marie, but I've heard Kate Baldwin perform "When Did I Fall in Love?" before and it's just lovely.
