Maura Tierney returns to work – on stage

Tierney Former “NewsRadio” and “ER” star Maura Tierney left the cast of freshman NBC drama “Parenthood” last fall to focus on treatment of breast cancer, a distressing revelation that was revisited at today’s Television Critics Assn. panel about the upcoming Peacock show. But it’s worth noting some good news: As Gordon Cox of Variety reports, Tierney will be back to work soon – treading the boards in Los Angeles and New York runs of the play “North Atlantic.”

For those who hope to see Tierney perform in person, the production will appear at Los Angeles’ REDCAT theater Feb. 10-21, followed by a stint at the Jerome Robbins Theater in Gotham from March 10-April 25.

The news only adds to the optimism about Tierney’s condition voiced today by “Parenthood” showrunner Jason Katims, who said the actress was “doing really well.” Last month, “Rescue Me” exec producer Peter Tolan told a Hollywood Radio and Television Society luncheon audience that he was hopeful of bringing Tierney back to the FX drama, in the recurring role of Kelly she originated last year.

“Parenthood” is scheduled to premiere March 1 on NBC, with Lauren Graham in the role Tierney was originally slated to play.
