Michael Xavier and Anna Francolini are to replace Aaron Tveit and Catherine Tate in Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Xavier replaces Tveit as John Wilkes Booth. Tveit is having to leave the show earlier than planned, after his schedule for filming TV series Graceland was brought forward.
Francolini, whose credits include Our Town at the Almeida Theatre, replaces Tate as Sara Jane Moore for two weeks from February 10, with Tate returning after this to complete the run.
The show runs at the Menier until March 7.
