Holly Hunter bags stage role

Actress to star in Off Broadway's 'Vandal'

Holly Hunter has booked an Off Broadway gig as the topliner of “The Vandal,” the new play set to world preem in January at downtown venue the Flea.

Zach Grenier (“33 Variations”) and Noah Robbins also will appear in the new work by Hamish Linklater, best known as an actor (“The New Adventures of Old Christine,” Broadway’s “Seminar”). Flea a.d. Jim Simpson helms the play, described as a story about death and vandalism in Kingston, N.Y.

It’s been a while since Hunter showed up on the Gotham boards; her last Off Broadway stint was in 1998, when she appeared in the Roundabout Theater Company’s production of Beth Henley’s “Impossible Marriage.”

Ahead of “Vandal,” the Flea will stage the newly skedded New York preem of Amy Freed’s “Restoration Comedy,” helmed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar. Comedy skewering 17th century drama runs Nov. 25-Dec. 31.

Later in the winter, the venue’s recent production of Thomas Bradshaw’s “Job” will get a return engagement Jan. 4-28, after an earlier, extended run that was interrupted by Hurricane Sandy.

“Vandal” runs Jan. 18-Feb. 17.
