Glenn Close to return to Broadway in 'A Delicate Balance'

After months of hinting, it was finally announced in official terms that Glenn Close, the six-time Oscar nominee and multi-Emmy-winning star of Dangerous Liaisons and Damages, among many other projects, will take her first stab at Broadway in two decades in Edward Albee’s magnificent domestic dramedy A Delicate Balance, last revived in 1996 in a Tony-winning production with George Grizzard and Elaine Stritch. Aside from a guest-starring stint in the Brit import The Play What I Wrote some 10 years ago, this will be the first time Ms. Close has starred on Broadway since her Tony-winning turn as Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd’s Webber’s Sunset Boulevard in 1994. And she has far from a bunch of slouches joining her: John Lithgow (due to play King Lear this summer in NYC’s Central Park), Lindsay Duncan, Martha Plimpton, Clare Higgins, and Bob Balaban (with dozens of awards among them) will also appear in the play, to be directed by last year’s Tony victor for best director of a play, Pam McKinnon (Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?).
