Megan Mullally Exits Broadway Revival Of Lips Together, Teeth Apart

Let the rumors begin. It was announced today that Emmy winner and stage and television star Megan Mullally has excited the Broadway revival of Terrance McNally's Lips Together, Teeth Apart. The show which is produced by the Roundabout Theater Company was scheduled to begin previews at the American Airlines Theatre on April 9.

As of now the first preview has been postponed with an announcement of a new preview date and her replacement due shortly. Opening night is still scheduled for April 29. Here is a statement that was released today by Roundabout Theatre Company Artistic Director Todd Haimes about Ms. Mullally's sudden departure.

"We were surprised and disappointed that Megan Mullally had to withdraw from the production immediately in breach of her contract. With the loss of Megan in a four-person ensemble, work has been delayed after only two weeks of rehearsal. We have wanted Joe Mantello to direct this comedy since he staged a reading for us three years ago. We expect to announce replacement casting shortly."

Speculation is running rampant all over the message boards on who will replace her. At this point it's anybody's guess. Expect a announcement to be made in the next few days. Who knows? Maybe all this controversy will boost ticket sales. We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
