Bubble, bubble, toil...and fully cast. As in the full cast of the Signature Theatre's American debut of the musical version of The Witches of Eastwick, has been announced. The show flies into D.C. 's Max Theatre on June 5, opening on June 11. The show runs through July 15.

The musical is based on the John Updike novel and the Warner Bros film adaptation of said novel. It involves three frustrated heroines, bitchin' and a moanin' about their humdrum lives in the U. S. of A. Into their lives comes the silky, suave Daryl Van Horne, aka, the devil. And mayhem and strange happenings soon follow. The music is by Dana P. Rowe and the lyrics by John Dempsey.

The cast includes Emily Skinner(Alexandra), Jacqulyn Piro Donovan( Sukie) and Christiane Noll( Jane). Mr. Van Horne is played by Marc Kudisch. Music direction will be by Jon Kalbfleisch; costumes by Alejo Vietti; lighting by Chris Lee; sound by Matt Rowe; orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin; sets by Walt Spangler and choreography by Karma Camp.

Going back to the summer of 2000, the Cameron MacKintosh musical had its world premiere in the West End's Drury Lane. It starred Marie Friedman, Joanna Riding and Lucie Arnaz as the lustful threesome and Ian ( Deadwood) McShane as Daryl Van Horne. It did not have a long and prosperous run
