"Frasier" On Broadway!

Well, almost. David Hyde Pierce is starring in "Curtains," a new musical comedy murder mystery from Kander & Ebb that got terrific reviews (especially for Pierce) during its tryout run. That begins previews February 27. Then John Mahoney stars in a revival of the Craig Lucas comedy "Prelude To A Kiss." That starts previews March 8. Finally, Kelsey Grammer plays Henry Higgings in a semi-staged concert version of "My Fair Lady" with the NY Philharmonic. That runs from March 7 through March 10. So for one week in March, you'll be able to see Dr. Frasier Crane, Niles and their dad all in major productions in New York City. Poor Daphne -- always left behind.

Physically and acting wise, definitely. Does she sing?

Edward Hibbert, who played Gil Chesterton on FRASIER, is also in CURTAINS.

Thanks. I've interviewed him but hadn't noticed.
