He'll star opposite .J. Caruncho and Arielle Jacobs as the Baker and the Baker's Wife, respectively, and Annemarie Rosano as Cinderella, Playbill first reported. Justin Fortunato will direct.
Of the non-traditional casting choice, Natalie Caruncho of the Carnival Studio Theater told Playbill, "We wrote a letter, through MTI, addressed to Mr. Sondheim and Mr. Lapine regarding Tituss playing the Witch and we were approved!"
