Two of the actresses from AMC’s sublime drama will be appearing in upcoming productions at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood over the next few weeks.

Anna Gunn, who plays Walt’s wife, Skyler, is set to topline in “Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie.” The play runs Nov. 9 through Dec. 11 at the intimate Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen, and was written by Alan Alda. This production marks its world premiere.

The play, which also stars Annabeth Gish and another “Breaking Bad” thesp, John de Lancie (he played the air traffic controller in season two), delves into the life of Curie, one of the most important scientists of the 20th century.

Alda is known best, of course, for his role as Hawkeye Pierce on “M*A*S*H,” but he has long been interested in science. He previously worked with PBS on “Scientific American Frontiers” and “The Human Spark.”

Also from “Breaking Bad,” Betsy Brandt is set to hit the mainstage at the Geffen. Playing Hank’s wife, Marie, on the show, Brandt will co-star in “Next Fall,” the new play from Geoffrey Nauffts.Betsy

The play stars Nauffts, also an actor, and “Lone Star” lead James Wolk as a gay couple. When one of them is involved in a terrible car accident, truths are exposed that may not have come to the surface.

“Next Fall” is set to begin previews Oct. 25, with Nov. 2 targeted as the official premiere.
