Irena’s Vow, the new play starring Tovah Feldshuh, has its official Broadway opening today at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Meanwhile over at the American Airlines Theatre, Mary-Louise Parker is giving her final performance in the Roundabout Theatre Company production of Hedda Gabler.
The Roundabout Theatre Company’s Hedda Gabler, starring Mary-Louise Parker, officially opens on Broadway today at the American Airlines Theatre. Parker is best known as the star of the HBO series Weeds, but she has also frequently appeared on Broadway, most notably as the lead in the play Proof, a role which earned her a Tony Award.
The new Broadway revival of Henrik Ibsen’s classic Hedda Gabler starts performances today at the American Airlines Theatre. This Roundabout Theatre Company production stars Mary-Louise Parker (whose Broadway credits include a Tony-winning turn in Proof) in the title role. Her co-stars include Broadway and Off-Broadway regular Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd, Assassins, Titanic) and TV/film character actor Peter Stormare, who is making his Broadway debut. Hedda Gabler officially opens on Broadway on January 25 and is scheduled to play through March 29.
It has just been announced that Mary-Louise Parker, last seen on Broadway in the play Reckless, will return to Broadway in early 2009 as the title character in Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. Roundabout Theatre Company will present the Broadway revival, which will be adapted by playwright Christopher Shinn and directed by Ian Rickson. Parker is frequently seen on the New York stage, both on Broadway and Off-Broadway, but she is also known to film and TV audiences for her screen work, such as Fried Green Tomatoes and the TV series Weeds.
