It’s been 20 years since Glenn Close has performed on Broadway, but the Tony-award winning actress is making a comeback this fall. Close is set to star in a revival of A Delicate Balance, which first premiered on Broadway in 1966.
Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama will officially open on Nov. 20, according to the Hollywood Reporter, though preview performances begin in October. Pam MacKinnon, who won a Tony Award for another Albee play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”, will direct the play, which also stars John Lithgow and Martha Plimpton.
Close, who was a stage actress before moving to the big screen — her first feature film was 1982’s The World According to Garp — already has three Tonys to her name, including one in 1995 for her role as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.
The revival is set to run for 18 weeks at the Golden Theatre.
