Faith Prince to replace Paulo Szot in Cabaret Series at OCPAC

February 12, 2010 |  5:25 am

Prince Tony-winning Broadway star Faith Prince will perform at the Samueli Theater in the season closer of the Cabaret Series at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

Prince replaces Tony-winner Paulo Szot, who had been scheduled to perform in the series but had to cancel due to the extended run of "South Pacific" at Lincoln Center in New York.

Prince is set to appear on stage from April 8 to 11. Tickets for the engagement go on sale starting March 14.

A four-time Tony nominee, Prince won the award in 1992 for her performance in "Guys and Dolls." She most recently received a nomination in 2008  for the play "A Catered Affair," which ran at the Old Globe in San Diego before its Broadway engagement.

Her last Broadway role was as Ursula in "The Little Mermaid," which closed in August.

Szot is an opera baritone who found fame by playing the role of Emile in Lincoln Center's revival of "South Pacific," which began performances in 2008.

He is scheduled to make his debut at the Metropolitan Opera next month in Shostakovich's "The Nose," which runs from March 5 to 25.

Szot will then return to "South Pacific" on March 30.
