Legit Bits

Not once but twice, Jill Clayburgh is back on Broadway after a 20-year absence.

The actress was recently set to co-star in the “Barefoot in the Park” revival, due to open in February. Now comes word that Clayburgh will precede that stint by headlining Richard Greenberg’s new “A Naked Girl on the Appian Way,” under the direction of Doug Hughes (“Doubt”), which will open Oct. 6 at the Roundabout’s American Airlines Theater.

Clayburgh’s previous Broadway credit was a revival of “Design of Living” in 1984.
