Messing, 43, is reportedly having an affair with one of her co-stars — after leaving her husband of 10 years, TV producer Daniel Zelman (“Damages”).Her new love interest is actor Will Chase, 41, who — yes — plays her ex-boyfriend on the show.He married his co-star, actress Sutton Foster, who had played Millie, in September 2006.
Recent Tony nominee Jerry Mitchell directed and choreographed the production.
Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin wrote the music and lyrics and the book was penned by Heather Hach.
Interestingly Christian and Sutton had made a concerted effort to remain friends.
Whatever happened between them (and both say it wasn’t just one thing), it was not unforgivable to the extent that they couldn’t be in each other’s lives anymore.
"We are overjoyed to have this incredible company back together," producers Nancy Nagel Gibbs and Greg Schaffert said in a joint statement.
"And we are very grateful that Christian Borle was, in the end, able to work around his commitments to the TV series 'Smash' so that he can reprise his role as Black Stache." Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the play features a company of 12 actors playing more than 100 characters and telling the story of how Peter Pan became the boy who never grew up.Borle appeared in a 2003 advertisement for California-based online auction company, e Bay.In the 30-second TV spot, Borle plays a store clerk who breaks into song and dance when asked about a product.The original cast featured Laura Bell Bundy as the ambitious and adorable Elle Woods, Christian Borle as Emmett Forrest and Orfeh as Paulette.The who’s who of other talented performers included Andy Karl, Annaleigh Ashford and Kate Wetherhead.They still think highly of each other and make sure to see each other’s shows on Broadway.
