Renée Elise Goldsberry to Star in York's Baker's Wife

Renée Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline, "One Life to Live") will play Genevieve in the York Theatre Company's Musicals in Mufti production of Stephen Schwartz and Joseph Stein's The Baker's Wife, October 26-28. The production will be directed by Gordon Greenberg, who helmed the Paper Mill Playhouse's 2006 production of the musical.

The musical, based on a French film by Marcel Pagnol and Jean Giono, concerns a young woman in a small French village who leaves her much older husband, a big-hearted baker, for a sexy young man. The show was headed for Broadway in 1976, but closed out of town; the cast included Patti LuPone, Paul Sorvino, and Kurt Peterson.

The York production will also star Lenny Wolpe as Amiable, Max von Essen as Dominique, Gay Marshall as Denise, and Kevin Cahoon as the Priest. The cast also features Wendi Bergamini, Jacque Carnahan, Rick Crom, Betsy DiLellio, Joy Franz, Laurent Giroux, Mitchell Greenberg, Michael Mederios, John O'Creagh, Richard Pruitt, Maureen Silliman, and Clinton Zugel.
