Christopher Sieber will replace ailing Arrested Development star Jeffrey Tambor as Georges in the Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles, according to The New York Times.
Sieber, who received Tony award nominations for Shrek the Musical and Monty Python's Spamalot, had been scheduled to star in another revival, playing Billy Flynn in the long-running production of Chicago. Producers of that show released Sieber from his contract to begin rehearsals for La Cage. Tambor dropped out of the show last Thursday, citing complications from recent hip surgery as the reason. Sieber will star in the groundbreaking drag musical opposite another gay actor, Harvey Fierstein. The two men previously worked together in the Broadway production of Hairspray. The date for Sieber's first performance in La Cage hasn't yet been announced.
