NEW YORK (AP) - Kelsey Grammer has tied the knot for the fourth
time in a familiar place.


The "Cheers" and "Frasier" star married 29-year-old flight
attendant Kayte Walsh on Friday at Broadway's Longacre Theatre -
the same place where the actor had been headlining "La Cage aux
Folles" with Douglas Hodge until earlier this month.
 

Stan Rosenfield, a Grammer representative, called the event "a
private ceremony for family and friends." A reception followed at
the Plaza Hotel.


Grammer, 56, received a Tony Award nomination for his role in
the show playing Georges, the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on
the French Riviera.
 

The ceremony was held before the evening performance of "La
Cage," which revealed bad news the same day when it announced that
Jeffrey Tambor had permanently pulled out of the production.


Tambor, best known for his roles on TV in "The Larry Sanders
Show" and "Arrested Development," had replaced Grammer on Feb.
15 but "was experiencing complications from recent hip surgery and
the pain and the challenge of performing in a musical eight times a
week proved to be too physically demanding," according to a
statement from producers. His last show was Thursday.
 

Chris Hoch, who regularly plays the role of Francis and
understudies the role of Georges, will play the role on Friday
night. Casting for the role of Georges will be announced soon.


Harvey Fierstein, who replaced Tony Award-winner Douglas Hodge,
remains in the show.
 

Grammer's divorce from his third wife, "Real Housewives of
Beverly Hills" star Camille Grammer, became final earlier this
month. They had been married for 13 years and have two young
children.
It's Walsh's first marriage.
