"In the development of the show in San Francisco the creative team has decided to take the character of Armand, wonderfully played by Jack Noseworthy, in a new direction," director Robert Jess Roth said in a statement. "I have enjoyed working with Jack and his contributions to our show have been invaluable. We will all miss him."
"Being part of the creative process of Lestat has been a tremendous pleasure and an enriching experience," Noseworthy added in the release. "I am confident that taking the character of Armand in a new direction is the correct choice for the production. I wish my friends well, and a long prosperous run."
