Seattle Star, Allen Fitzpatrick, is returning to NYC to play the role of Mr. Simmons in the Tony Award winning musical, Memphis! Fitzpatrick created the role of Simmons at the La Jolla Playhouse and returned to play the role here at The 5th Avenue Theatre's production.
Instead of heading to Banff for two weeks (with Ian Eisendrath, David Pichette, Brandon O'Neill, Billie Wildrick, and other 5th Avenue folks to workshop Loulou The Acrobat), he will be joining the Memphis Broadway cast for a multi-week engagement.
Fitzpatrick begins his performances tonight, for an 8 week run. Give our regards to Broadway, friend!
