Broadway vets Bryan Batt (Saturday Night Fever) and Josh Young (Amazing Grace) will join the previously reported Betty Buckley and Rachel York in Grey Gardens at CTG/Ahmanson Theatre. Directed by Michael Wilson, the production will play a limited engagement July 6 through August 14. Opening night is set for July 13. Next stop New York?!The cast will also include Peyton Ella, Sarah Hunt, Simon Jones, Katie Silverman, Davon Williams, Olivia Curry, Rogelio Douglas Jr., Steven Good, Melina Kalomas, Michelle London and Rebecca Spencer.Based on the cult 1975 documentary of the same name, Grey Gardens features a book by Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie. The tuner concerns both the deliciously eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who were once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, but became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion. Set in two eras—in 1941 when the estate was in its prime and in 1973 when it was reduced to squalor—the musical tells the alternatively hilarious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable individuals, Edith Bouvier Beale (Buckley) and her adult daughter “Little” Edie (York).

Nothing about having that conversation with Jimmy is easy.” Rollins was held out of the Dodgers’ starting lineup in 14 games earlier this month because of an injury to his right index finger. It was during this time, Mattingly said, that Seager seized the job. “Opportunity knocks and he seemed to do well right away,” Mattingly said. “If Jimmy doesn’t hurt his index finger, we may not be having this conversation right now.”McCarthy throwsAnyone wondering about Brandon McCarthy’s recovery from Tommy John surgery will be pleased to know he’s throwing again. The pitcher played catch at AT&T Park for the first time since his surgery on Monday. He felt well enough to do it again on Tuesday. McCarthy might be less excited about his progress than anyone.“There’s no excitement level,” he said. “I’ve attached no emotion to any of it so far. I don’t want it to be a series of ups and downs. I want it to be a process that happens each day, just its own thing. I didn’t look forward to yesterday. I knew it was just another step of, ‘oh good, now I get to play catch’.”McCarthy said the act of throwing only felt normal after about six throws Monday. “It’s just re-teaching your arm,” he said. “Letting all the nerves re-learn what they’re meant to do. You’re not trying to stress anything or push it. It’s just kind of re-learning it, I guess.”AlsoYasiel Puig began hitting in simulated games Monday and Tuesday at the Dodgers’ Camelback Ranch facility in Glendale, Ariz. SAN FRANCISCO >> New York Yankees first baseman Wally Pipp led the American League in home runs in 1916 and 1917. He won a World Series in 1923. In 1925, he went into a slump and was benched in favor of a rookie named Lou Gehrig. Pipp never got his job back as Gehrig started 2,130 consecutive games en route to a Hall of Fame career. Even 90 years later, replacing an established veteran with a young up-and-comer is still hard, whether the manager is Miller Huggins or Don Mattingly, whether the veteran is Wally Pipp or Jimmy Rollins. “Nothing like this is ever easy,” said Mattingly, who effectively chose 21-year-old Corey Seager over the 36-year-old Rollins as his everyday shortstop Tuesday. Seager batted fifth and played shortstop against one of the best left-handed pitchers in baseball, Madison Bumgarner. He also started Monday against Giants right-hander Jake Peavy. Tuesday’s decision was a somewhat unusual one for Mattingly, who often makes out his lineup card based on handedness. Tuesday, he stacked his lineup with six right-handers and three lefties (Seager, Adrian Gonzalez and Clayton Kershaw) against the left-handed Bumgarner. It appears Seager is in the Dodgers’ lineup to stay, relegating Rollins to a bench role. Mattingly wouldn’t offer an overview of the shortstop position Tuesday — “I’m not trying to view it,” he said, “other than to put out the lineup that gives us the best chance to win tonight” — though the change is significant enough that he recently met with Rollins to discuss it. “It’s definitely a conversation, that’s for sure, out of respect to him, his career, what he’s done in his career,” Mattingly said. “But also I feel like he’s been a huge part of our club this year, getting it where we are right now — his leadership in the middle of the diamond, in the clubhouse. I feel he’s been a rock in that circumstance.” Seager is batting .342 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 22 games. He’s reached base in each of his 20 starts to begin his career, something no Dodger has done since 1953. Rollins has played 142 games in his first season as a Dodger, batting a career-low .225 with 13 home runs and 41 RBIs. His 12 stolen bases (in 20 attempts) are also a career low.
