Relatively Speaking Opens On Broadway

Posted: Updated:

I am so happy to be back on Broadway in a new play written by Elaine May -- George Is Dead -- which is one of three one-act plays that are wildly different kinds of comedies -- in an evening called "Relatively Speaking." The other two plays are written by Woody Allen and Ethan Coen. So you have a pretty good idea that they are all wonderfully funny.

I always dreamed of being an actress. When I was in high school plays my mother and father would always say, "She's got the bug!" And I still do. Every time the curtain goes up or the camera starts rolling, there is a thrill inside me and I think, "Wow, how lucky am I? I still get to do this thing I love." Sure, it's incredibly hard work performing eight shows a week but all work worth doing is hard. And when you have co-workers like Elaine May, Woody Allen, Ethan Coen, John Turturro, Steve Guttenberg, Julie Kavner and many more funny people, you end up laughing a lot!

A few weeks ago we had a press day where the members of the cast got to talk about the play and give a little preview of what audiences can expect. I know you'll recognize many members of our cast so I wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it.

If you know anything about me, you know, I love to laugh. I assume most of you do, too. So come see us at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on 47th street.
