Glenn Close will return to Broadway for the first time in twenty years in a new revival of Edward Albee’s “A Delicate Balance.” The three-time Tony and Emmy Award winner was last seen on the New York stage as Norma Desmond in “Sunset Boulevard,” for which she won the 1994 Tony for Lead Actress in a Musical.
Ms. Close’s long and celebrated career includes roles in “The World According to Garp,” “The Big Chill,” “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Albert Nobbs” and dozens of others. She joined the cast of the acclaimed FX television drama “The Shield” during its fourth season, playing Monica Rawling, a new police captain. Two years later in 2007, she starred in a series of her own, playing the ruthless attorney Patty Hewes in another acclaimed FX series “Damages.” In addition to her Emmy and Tony Awards, she has been nominated for six Academy Awards.
Her prior stage appearances include “The Real Thing” and “Death and the Maiden,” both which garnered her Tony Awards.
Edward Albee’s “A Delicate Balance” was first produced in 1966 and won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Pam MacKinnon, who won a Tony for directing Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” directs an all-star cast that includes John Lithgow, Lindsay Duncan, Martha Plimpton, Bob Balaban and Clare Higgins.
The limited eight-week run begins on October 20 with a scheduled press opening on November 20.
