Stars Will Chase, Laura Osnes, Leslie Uggams, Tom Wopat and Stephen Wallem prepare to inhabit John Steinbeck's characters in the Mark Bruni- directed City Center Encores! concert production of Pipe Dream, playing March 28-April 1. Based on Steinbeck's "Sweet Thursday," the sequel to his popular novel "Cannery Row," the musical features Chase as marine biologist Doc to Osnes' prostitute Suzy — a character Rodgers and Hammerstein struggled with in adaptation. Borrowing from the New Haven tryout's script, and with the Steinbeck novel in mind, Bruni and crew added some grit to the long forgotten 1955 show — but not enough to unbalance the original intention of the authors.
