Pullman, Ivey pick ‘Roses’

Foglia will direct Kennedy Center revival

Bill Pullman and Judith Ivey will headline a revival of “The Subject Was Roses” at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Jan. 7-29.

Leonard Foglia will direct and Jeffrey Finn will produce the show as part of the center’s theater series. That’s the team that mounted “On Golden Pond,” starring James Earl Jones and Leslie Uggams, at the Kennedy Center last season for a similar three-week run — and then took the show to Broadway.

“There are other markets I’m talking to outside of New York for the immediate future,” Finn told Daily Variety when asked if he was eyeing a Broadway transfer. “But the short answer is yes.”

Pullman (“The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?”) and Ivey (“Hurlyburly,” “Follies”) will play the parents of a son (not yet cast) whose homecoming from World War II proves rocky.

Frank D. Gilroy’s play won the Pulitzer and two Tonys in 1965 and became a film in 1968.

As for “On Golden Pond,” Finn plans a 30-week national tour for the show beginning in September, starring Richard Chamberlain.
