Andrew Keenan-Bolger is set to star as Jesse Tuck in the Boston previews of the Broadway hopeful musical Tuck Everlasting based on the 1975 book by Natalie Babbit!
Keenan-Bolger’s best known role is that of Crutchie on the Broadway production of Newsies. His other Broadway credits include Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins and Seussical.
Tuck Everlasting tells the story of Winnie Foster who forms a friendship with Jesse Tuck and his family, who become immortal after drinking from an enchanted spring. Tuck Everlasting will run at the Citi Emerson Colonial Theater in Boston from July 28 through August 18.
The cast for Tuck Everlasting also includes two time Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello (Scandalous, The Addams Family) as Ma Tuck and 10-year-old newcomer Sadie Sink (Annie) as Winnie Foster amongst the cast.
If you don’t feel like reading the book, then check out either the 1981 film starring Margaret Chamberlain, Paul Flessa, Fred A. Keller, James McGuire and Sonia Raimi or the 2002 Disney film starring Alexis Bledel, Jonathan Jackson, William Hurt, Sissy Spacek and Ben Kingsley versions of Tuck Everlasting.
