Chicago Shakespeare Theater has announced casting for its upcoming production of Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's "Follies."
Hollis Resnik will perform the role of Carlotta (and sing "I'm Still Here") in director Gary Griffin's production. The Broadway actor Brent Barrett will play Benjamin; Caroline O'Connor plays Phyllis; Robert Petkoff plays Buddy and Susan Moniz plays Sally.
Also in the cast: Mike Nussbaum, Nancy Voigts, Marilyn Bogetich, Kathy Taylor, Dennis Kelly, Ami Silvestre, Bill Chamberlain, Adrian Aguilar, Jen Donohoo, Jenny Guse, Amanda Kroiss and Christina Myers.
"Follies" begins Oct. 4 on Navy Pier, just a few weeks after a Kennedy Center revival of the same show transfers to Broadway.
