John to join The Royal Family
John will be featured in the cast of the production of The Royal Family, part of the Manhattan Theater Club's 2009-2010 season. To be produced at MTC'S Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, The Royal Family is written by George S. Kaufman & Edna Ferber and directed by Doug Hughes. Previews will begin: Tuesday, September 15, 2009 with opening Night: Thursday, October 8, 2009.

According to broadwayworld's article, "It's half past one in the fabulously cluttered Cavendish duplex in the East Fifties, and anyone who's anyone is still asleep. So begins THE ROYAL FAMILY, the classic comedy of theatrical manners, written by two of the theatre's greatest writers, George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, whose other storied collaborations include Dinner at Eight and Stage Door. This devilishly funny play follows the Cavendishes, the famous family of stage stars, as they go about the drama of the day: choosing scripts, dashing off to a performance, and stealing kisses with handsome beaus. But what's this business about the younger Miss Cavendish wanting to quit the stage for domestic bliss? Never, darling! This delicious comedy will be directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt). And the fantastic cast includes Tony winner John Glover as 'Herbert Dean,' Tony Award winner and Oscar nominee Rosemary Harris as 'Fanny Cavendish,' Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Jan Maxwell as 'Julie Cavendish, and Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award nominee Reg Rogers as 'Tony Cavendish'

This will Mark Harris' second time appearing in THE ROYAL FAMILY on Broadway. In the acclaimed 1976 production, she played the role of 'Julie Cavendish,' the role that will be played by Jan Maxwell in the upcoming Broadway production.
