Tony-winning actress to reprise role in play
Two-time Tony winner Judith Ivey will reprise her much-praised perf in Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” next spring in Gotham.
The Roundabout Theater Company will present the recent Long Wharf Theater production of “Menagerie” –which earned Ivey raves as Southern matriarch Amanda — at its Off Broadway venue, the Laura Pels Theater. Gordon Edelstein, a.d of the Long Wharf in New Haven, Conn., will once again helm.
Long Wharf staging, which also featured Josh Charles, Patch Darragh and Keira Keeley, ended its run earlier this month.
Ivey also is set to helm the musical “Vanities” next month at Off Broadway’s Second Stage. This fall at the Cherry Lane Theater she will star in the solo show “The Lady with All the Answers,” based on the life of advice columnist Ann Landers.
